When: July 30, 2014

Martin talks to award-winning author and journalist David Giffels about his new book The Hard Way on Purpose: Essays and Dispatches From the Rust Belt. For David, whose writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Grantland, Ohio has always been home. He was born in Akron in the 1960s and has seen the once-thriving rubber and tire industry in his part of the country crumble. As a kid, he watched adults lose their jobs. As an adult, he's watched friends leave one by one. Yet a devoted tract of the population, David included, remains in the Rust Belt, committed to celebrating their singular Midwest culture and carrying it forward. David's insights ring true to us Michigan residents as well.
