We are all familiar with the term, The American Dream. Can we define it over the last two hundred years? Is it a tangible thing or is it more aspirational? What is the state of the American dream today and who are the winners and losers in the latest version of the American Dream ?

Join us for a very lively discussion at the Bloomsburg Library at 6:00 PM, 7 June.
