Culture

Grow Up

The latest episode of The Bookmonger features Sen. Ben Sasse, author of The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis and How to Build a Culture of Self-Reliance. We discuss the problem of perpetual adolescence, the virtue of work, and why the senator wrote a book that’s more about culture than about politics. 

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
