Award-winning Washington Post reporter Amy Goldstein spent years getting to know Janesville, Wisconsin, where the nation’s oldest operating General Motors plant shut down in 2008, in the midst of the Great Recession. She wove the stories of the small city and its people together in Janesville: An American Story.
Goldstein will discuss her book and the lessons it offers about economic pain and community resilience at three Community Voices events on Monday, February 19.
