Program Description : Dr. Colleen Eren, a South Huntington resident and professor of sociology, discusses her new book , Bernie Madoff and the Crisis (Stanford University Press), featuring interviews she conducted for over 4 years with Madoff from prison. She will examine our obsession with the Madoff case and its treatment in the media, and how this infamous Ponzi scheme case became a way for Americans to contend with larger social and economic issues like wealth inequality, regulation, and punishment of white collar crime. The book offers fresh insight into the 2008 financial crisis and Madoff, and what we have yet to learn from the case of the century. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
