JASON DEPARLE, AWARD WINNING NEWYORK TIMES REPORTER AND AUTHOR
Jason DeParle is a reporter for The New York Times and has written extensively about poverty and immigration. In his new book, “A Good Provider Is One Who Leaves,” DeParle discusses migration at both a global and very personal level. As he chronicles the story of three generations of a Filipino family, DeParle reveals the personal, cultural, and economic challenges and opportunities the family faced, whether as migrants or those remaining behind. In a conversation typically told via data and policy analysis, DeParle’s lens on immigration trends, the costs and rewards of migration to both sending and receiving communities, and examination of the political and economic questions surrounding migration offer the opportunity for a rich discussion.
