“Dream Hoarders” Book Reading & Discussion | Green Apple Books

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Green Apple Books and Music | 506 Clement Street, San Francisco, CA



Please join Green Apple Books on Tuesday, June 20th at 7pm as they welcome Richard Reeves, reading from and discussing his new book “Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do About It.”

America prides itself on being a classless society, where hard work and talent get you ahead. A place where status is earned, not inherited. At least, that’s the idea. In fact, the United States is marked by a deepening class divide. Debates about inequality focus on the wealth of “super-rich,” or the top 1 percent. But as Richard Reeves shows, the most important and consequential gap in American society is the one between the upper middle class―broadly, the top fifth―and everyone else.
