FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The City of Springfield, along with the 12 partner organizations listed below, are bringing author and Harvard professor Robert D. Putnam to speak noon-1 p.m. Friday, April 8 at Missouri State University’s annual Public Affairs Conference at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts. Putnam, author of “Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis,” and “Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community,” will address what he calls the “opportunity gap,” noon-1 p.m. at the conference. Putnam is a political scientist and Malkin Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government. He is responsible for popularizing the term "social capital." Praised by The Washington Post, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Book Review, “Our Kids” explores why "fewer Americans today have the opportunity for upward mobility.” Admission to the conference is free and open to the public, and registration is not necessary.
