Strapped.  The book.

The Bus Project and Demos are pleased to bring author Tamara Draut to town to talk about why it's harder than ever for America's 20- and 30-somethings to get ahead. Her new book, Strapped, is out in stores now.

One in three 18 to 34 year olds doesn't have health insurance. We youngsters average $9000 in credit card debt. And the maximum Pell Grant award, the nation's premier program for helping poor kids pay for college, covers about one-third of the costs of a four-year college today. It covered three-quarters in the 1970s. What's the deal? Has our political apathy shot us in our collective Converse-bedecked foot?

Thanks for the heads up, Niki!
