Peter Kilborn talked about his book Next Stop, Reloville: Life Inside America’s New Rootless Professional Class (Times Books; July 7, 2009). Formerly a New York Times reporter for thirty years, Peter Kilborn investigated the practices and motivation of a subdivision of the professional class that he dubs “relos,” for whom constant relocation is a way of life in order to maintain their place on the corporate ladder. He examined the toll it takes on families to trade having roots for having wealth. He also examined the effect of “Relovilles” on community life. Mr. Kilborn read some passages from the book and responded to questions from members of the audience.  close
