Tuesdays: Feb 6th, Feb 20th, March 5th, and March 19th @ 6:00pm

Join FAME’s College Savings Counselor, Marie Pelletier, in dissecting Erin Lowery’s Broke Millennial Takes on Investing.

This book club is great for someone looking for an introduction to different investment-related topics. In Lowery’s second edition of the Broke Millennial financial book series, she addresses some of the biggest questions early investors have, such as: 

  *  Should I invest while paying down student loans?  

  *  How do I invest in a socially responsible way?  

  *  What about robo-advisors and apps--are any of them any good?       

  *  Where can I look online for investment advice? 

Students will need to purchase their own copy of the book to participate.

If this is a barrier to participation, please email Morgan at mwitham@dises.org  by January 31st, and Deer Isle Adult Ed will provide a copy for you.

This book study is offered by FAME in partnership with adult education programs across Aroostook, Hancock, Penobscot and Washington Counties.  

This is live online using ZOOM.
