Charles Murray is a political scientist, author, and libertarian. He has written several books, including Losing Ground, which has been credited as the intellectual foundation for the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. His most recent book, Coming Apart, describes his take on an unprecedented divergence in American classes over the last half century. Guests of this event will receive a complimentary copy of Coming Apart.
