The plight of the American middle class will be under the microscope this Saturday, Feb. 16, as Adam Davis returns to the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum for another Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project.

“The Middle Class and Other Stories of Wealth, Status and, Redux” is a follow-up to Davis’ visit in January of 2018. At that time, participants in the program expressed interest in re-visiting the same topic to see how things have — or have not — changed.

Davis, the executive director of Oregon Humanities, holds a PhD from the University of Chicago and has given keynote speeches and facilitated workshops across the nation. In his previous role as director of the Center for Civic Reflection, he designed and implemented “Justice Talking/The Meaning of Service,” a nationwide discussion program for AmeriCorps, VISTA and other service organizations.

Saturday’s presentation, which is free and open to all, will start at 1 pm at the museum, located at 2106 SE Second Street, Tillamook. For more information, go to www.tcpm.org.
