Don’t miss this special event!

Evan Mandery, Poison Ivy: How Elite Colleges Divide Us The Ivy League colleges claim to recruit from all socio-economic groups, but most students come from

the top 1% of earners; very few come from the bottom 20%. A college degree is the surest route to upward mobility but statistical analysis and insider accounts show that elite colleges reinforce economic and social inequality, thereby perpetuating divisions with American society.

Cost: $40 plus tax. Please RSVP by Saturday, March 18 to: entertainment@montaukclub.com

**Please note, dinner is not mandatory and members are welcome to join just for the talk if preferred.
