Author & Journalist Jill Filipovic on Her Book, OK Boomer, Let's Talk: How My Generation Got Left Behind

We sit down with Jill Filipovic—lawyer, author, and columnist for The Guardian, the New York Times, and Cosmopolitan—to discuss her recent book, OK Boomer, Let's Talk: How My Generation Got Left Behind, in which she shares the definitive story of her generation. Speaking with gig workers, economists, policy makers, and dozens of struggling millennials drowning in debt on a planet quite literally in flames, Filipovic paints a shocking and nuanced portrait of a generation being left behind. Jill will be in conversation with Janna Meyrowitz Turner, Founder & President of Style House, a strategic communications and business development consultancy for female-forward brands on a mission.
