INVER GROVE HEIGHTS – Join nationally syndicated radio personality Chris Farrell on April 4 at Inver Hills Community College, where he will host a conversation about college students’ debt — focusing not just on what it means for those who owe, but also on how their debt loads impact the community as a whole.
Farrell’s presentation, titled “What’s Debt Got to Do With It?” is part of the Interesting Conversations with Interesting People series, presented by the college’s Academy for Lifelong Learning. The event is free, and will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theater on the Inver Hills campus.
Farrell has spent much of his life helping people make the most of their money. He is senior economics contributor at Marketplace, American Public Media’s nationally syndicated public radio business and personal finance programs. An award-winning journalist, Farrell is a columnist for Bloomberg Businessweek, Next Avenue and the Star Tribune. The author of three books, his latest is “The New Frugality: How to Consume Less, Save More and Live Better.”
Farrell’s presentation is the second in the spring 2013 Interesting Conversations series. Upcoming events include: “Portrait of a Public Servant” with Minnesota Supreme Court Associate Justice Paul H. Anderson, on April 25; and “A Campus Feeds a Community” with students and faculty who maintain the Inver Hills-Metro State Interdisciplinary Community Garden, on May 1.
