A novel set against the backdrop of the Lehman Brothers collapse, Behold the Dreamers offers insight into the global financial crisis and Great Recession, which we’ll consider, as its ten year anniversary is upon us.

We’ll talk about Imbolo Mbue’s take on the American Dream, shifting fortunes of families, and the secrets that lie just beneath the surface of things….

With business, careers, and finance all in mind, please join us for what promises to be a lively discussion!
