Des Moines Public Library business book pick: “Dignity in a Digital Age: Making Tech Work for All of Us” by Ro Khanna.
Why you should read it: U.S. Rep. Ro Khanna’s 2022 book explores the root causes – and a road map to fix – America’s digital divide. Khanna argues that unequal access to technology and the revenue it creates has become one of the most important issues facing the country in modern times. His book presents a bold vision for seeking dignity for all Americans in an era where technology is a driving force shaping everyone’s lives, whether they realize it or not.
