Author, activist visits CSUS

Jonathan Kozol - the author and educator who first came into the public spotlight when he was fired for reading a Langston Hughes poem to his students in the 1960s - talks at California State University, Sacramento at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 30. The event is in the University Union Ballroom and tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for CSUS students.

Kozol received the National Book Award in 1968 for his novel based on his teaching experiences called Death At an Early Age. Now considered a classic of progressive education, his novel has sold more than two million copies around the world.

He has recently authored a number of other works that deal with the dispossessed of American society, particularly children living in poverty. He is also widely recognized for his research on school finance, racial segregation, homelessness and social and medical conflicts of the poor. The Chicago Sun Times called Kozol, "today's most eloquent spokesman for America's disenfranchised."

Tickets for the event are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at (916) 766-2277. Additional media assistance is available at the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
