Eric Klinenberg: The Rise (and Appeal) of Living Alone
It's now more common for an American adult to live alone than with family or a roommate: half the residents of Manhattan live by themselves; in other big cities, more than a third of the population does. Sociologist Eric Klinenberg, author of Going Solo, examines the seismic impact this trend is having on our culture, business, and politics, and upends conventional wisdom with a startling and/or reassuring conclusion: In a world of ubiquitous media and hyperconnectivity, this solitary way of life helps us discover ourselves and appreciate the pleasure of good company. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
