Generation Debt to be addressed

Author Anya Kamenetz will give a speech regarding generation debt, a title given to young adults in American who may be the first generation to not be financially better off than their parents, on Oct. 17 in the Great Lakes Rooms of the University
Center. Kamenetz began freelance writing for the “Village Voice” while she was in college. One article assignment, “The
New Economics of Being Young,” sparked her interest and lead to a regular column about generation debt. Kamenetz will cover
topics such as cutting costs on everyday spending, trends in debt, cost control on education, student loans, credit-card debt and getting involved in politics. “This is an event for all audiences,” Platform Personality President Kendra Atkins said. “You don’t need to be in debt, or a college student to get something out of it.” The speech will be held at 7 p.m. and there is no need to get tickets in advance, said Atkins. Northern students can show up at the door with their student I.D. to gain free admission. The general public will be charged $2 at the door.
