Join Steve Clemons of the Atlantic for a conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Katherine Boo. She has spent 25 years reporting on poverty in the U.S. and abroad. Her bestseller, “Behind the Beautiful Forevers” tells the dramatic and sometimes heartbreaking story of families striving for a better life in a Mumbai slum. Based on three years of uncompromising reporting, Boo puts a human face on issues of inequality that also resonate within our own society.
