Robert Curvin, a Rutgers University alumnus and a longtime supporter of RU-N, is the author of the just published Inside Newark:  Decline, Rebellion, and the Search for Transformation. Describing Inside Newark, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian historian David levering Lewis stated, "Robert Curvin's aggressive research, candid narration, and unflinching judgments leave you informed, sobered, and guardedly optimistic that a once beleaguered city's search for transformation is at last well underway. Inside Newark is a book in the great tradition of Steffens's The Shame of the Cities."

This event, which is open to the public free of charge, is a panel discussion and book-signing.  Refreshments will be served. RSVP, please, by July 24th: or by calling 973-376-8273.
