MOORHEAD — Concordia College's Lorentzen Center for Faith and Work is hosting an event exploring the question "How do we build a more trustworthy world?"

Guest speaker Yuval Levin will discuss his book, "A Time to Build: From Family and Community to Congress and the Campus, How Recommitting to Our Institutions Can Revive the American Dream," during the talk from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 31, in Barry Auditorium.

The book delves into the "social crisis in which cultural forces are eroding some of our most important democratic institutions," according to a release from Concordia. Levin writes that a recommitment to institutional building is key to revitalizing the American dream.

The free event will be hybrid with attendees having the option of joining in-person or remotely. The in-person audience is invited to bring their own lunch.

Levin is director of Social, Cultural and Constitutional Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. He is the founder and editor of National Affairs, senior editor at The New Atlantis, contributing editor at National Review and a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
