Author Talk: Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit and the Making of the College Admissions Scandal"

9780593087725 1Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz, authors of "Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit and the Making of the College Admissions Scandal" will speak at an event sponsored by the Friends of the Scarsdale Library (FOSL) on Thursday October 8 at 8 pm.

Veteran Wall Street Journal reporters Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz, have written “ a propulsive true-crime drama of greed and privilege run amok, set amid America's most exclusive enclaves and prestigious institutions. And it’s an important interrogation of class divisions and the myths of meritocracy in higher education; loopholes in admissions systems ripe for corruption; and modern parenthood and the lengths to which the privileged will go to preserve their status.”

The Library has purchased additional copies of the book so the community can have a chance to read it in preparation for the event. Dara Gruenberg, president of FOSL, will be moderating the talk with the authors. Upon registration, individuals will have an opportunity to submit anonymous questions that will drive the discussion about the largest admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Justice Department which sent shock waves through American schools and families.

A zoom link will be sent prior to the event.
