America’s middle class is experiencing an economic meltdown, threatening the sector of society long considered the nation’s bedrock. UNC Charlotte author and researcher Scott Fitzgerald will explore these troubles and discuss ways to regain prosperity, in the first talk of UNC Charlotte’s 2014-15 Personally Speaking series.

The public is invited to the free community talk on Thursday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m. at UNC Charlotte Center City, 320 E. Ninth Street. UNC Charlotte’s College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and Atkins Library present this series each year, featuring college faculty authors.

Fitzgerald’s book, Middle Class Meltdown in America: Causes, Consequences and Remedies, addresses what individuals and society can do to put middle class Americans on a sounder footing. His talk will provide insights into causes and consequences of the growing middle class instability. Fitzgerald is an associate professor, associate chair and director of graduate studies in the Department of Sociology at UNC Charlotte.

A reception will follow the talk. RSVPs are requested, to clas-event@uncc.edu or 704-687-1429.
