NPR Family Matters at UAlbany

NPR Family Matters David Greene A crew from NPR will be at UAlbany next Thursday (October 15) for a series called Family Matters. Blurbage:

Facing first-time loans as a college student or a new mortgage as a third-time home buyer both come with risks, opportunities and, of course, questions. In collaboration with WAMC & WMHT, NPR Presents: Family Matters connects regular people with financial experts for an unconventional conversation about money. This live, lively and entirely FREE event is driven by an audience ready to talk strategy: from accumulating debt and amassing wealth; to saving for college, home ownership, retirement and even fitting in a midlife extravagance, or two.
NPR Presents: Family Matters is led by NPR Morning Edition host David Greene; Business correspondent Yuki Noguchi; nationally-syndicated personal finance columnist for the Washington Post Michelle Singletary; and personal finance expert Louis Barajas, who together equip audience members with greater confidence in their financial futures.

(Apparently NPR's version of Family Matters doesn't involve Urkel.)

The event is Thursday at 7 pm in the UAlbany Performing Arts Center's recital hall on the uptown campus. As the blurbage mentions, it's free -- and you can reserve a ticket online.
