Our first book event was in New York City. Hosted at the Civic Center by New America, Paying the Price featured discussion by Meta Brown of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, along with AEDI's Dr. Willie Elliott and Melinda Lewis. The conversation was moderated by Anya Kamenetz of National Pubic Radio. A podcast of the event is available. We then traveled to Washington, DC for an event on Wednesday morning at New America's DC offices, where we had a spirited conversation with Kevin Carey, Education Director at New America and Mark Huelsman of Demos, moderated by Danielle Douglas-Gabriel of the Washington Post. A video of that event is also available, thanks to New America's generous hosting.
We have enjoyed the conversations with attendees at the events, including members of the media. So far, the book and the issues it raises have been discussed in The National Review, Good Call, Inside Sources, USA Today, and NBC News, and by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and New America's Asset Building News. We also produced a podcast with New Books in Education, for a more academic audience. We will share other perspectives as they appear and, again, look forward to your reactions, as well.
