There are always people who insist that SOME inequality is a good thing, a potential motivator for people with lower incomes to work hard enough to get higher incomes. 

One of the offerings from the Conversation Project of Oregon Humanities is a session called "How Much Inequality Is Acceptable?" 

Writer/storyteller/professor Julia Hammond from Portland is the session leader. 

Before she brings the conversation to Medford and Grants Pass (Thursday, Jan. 28), she converses with us.
