The State Library of Massachusetts invites you to our next author talk, featuring Dr. Linda F. Nathan, Executive Director of the Center for Artistry and Scholarship, a non-profit affiliated with the Conservatory Lab Charter School in Dorchester. She will be speaking about her latest book, "When Grit Isn't Enough: A High School Principal Examines How Poverty and Inequality Thwart the College-for-All Promise." The book examines the major myths that inform our ideas about education, including the assumptions that college is for all, that race doesn't matter in higher education, and that hard work and determination are enough to guarantee success. In her book, Dr. Nathan explores the ways in which educators can better serve and support low-income, disadvantaged, and first-generation students.
