Reporting for six years on higher education, including at The University of Texas at Austin, Paul Tough has written what author Tara Westover, the author of Educated, calls an “indelible and extraordinary” account of higher education in the United States. His previous books include Whatever It Takes: Geoffrey Canada's Quest to Change Harlem and America, Helping Children Succeed and How Children Succeed, which spent more than a year on the New York Times hardcover and paperback bestseller lists. He is a contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine and a regular contributor to the public-radio program This American Life.
Hear from Tough, in conversation with award-winning UT faculty featured in his new book, "The Years that Matter Most: How College Makes or Breaks Us." The discussion will be moderated by College of Education Dean Charles Martinez, with opening remarks from Provost McInnis and College of Natural Sciences Dean Paul Goldbart. This event is free and open to the public. RSVPs encouraged: https://txsci.net/paultough
