Two authors will be dropping into the Central Library later this month to describe how they think many of today’s graduates have been let down by society.
Ed Howker and Shiv Malik will talk about their book ‘Jilted Generation’ on Tuesday, 25 January at 7.30pm. The talk will focus on how many graduates cannot afford to buy or rent a house and how millions of young Britons face the most uncertain future since the early 1930s.
Ed Howker, 29, is associate editor of The Spectator, and previously worked for Channel 4 Dispatches and The Independent, while Shiv Malik, 29, was listed among the Evening Standard’s most influential Londoners in 2008.
Between them they have written for the New Statesman, Observer, Private Eye and the Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph and have appeared on Sky News, Front Row, Newsnight, the Jeremy Vine Show as well as Radio 4’s PM and The Moral Maze.
