On the Issues: Anya Kamenetz on how COVID changed children’s lives, Oct. 24

The Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education and the College of Education will host Anya Kamenetz, author of “The Stolen Year: How COVID Changed Children’s Lives, and Where We Go Now,” in an “On The Issues” event on Monday, Oct. 24, at 4 p.m. in Eckstein Hall.  

Kamenetz’s book, released last month, has gained attention nationwide, including in The New York Times and Washington Post. 

The COVID-19 pandemic created enormous disruptions in schooling and in children’s lives more broadly. Join us as Alan Borsuk, Marquette Law School’s senior fellow in law and public policy, speaks with Kamenetz, a former NPR education reporter.  

They will discuss Kamenetz’s findings about difficulties facing children and parents and their exacerbation by the pandemic and the author’s perspective on what is needed going forward.  

The program is free and open to the public; however, registration is required. Please register online to attend in person.

The Law School has partnered with Boswell Book Company, which will offer The Stolen Year for sale at this event; you may also preorder copies online.
