From Page to Stage: A New American Dream for "Buried Child"

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Forte Reference Room

Event Details

The family at the center of Sam Shepard’s Buried Child grapples with a changing America in an era of rapid growth for some of the population, but not all. As we watch them fight for self-preservation, questions arise about how we can achieve success in a time when the American Dream is a moving, evolving target. How do we prepare our children for this? Matthias Doepke, an economics professor at Northwestern University, will explore how we and our families work toward a “New American Dream.” Dr. Doepke is co-author of Love, Money, & Parenting: How Economics Affects the Way We Raise Our Kids. Cosponsored with the Glencoe Historical Society and Writers Theatre.
