Adelle Waldman Presents Help Wanted
In conversation with Naomi Fry
Wine reception to follow

Bestselling author Adelle Waldman takes the Greenlight stage to present her new novel, Help Wanted, a funny, eye-opening tale of work in contemporary America. Every day at 3:55 a.m., members of Team Movement clock in for their shift at big-box store Town Square in a small upstate New York town. Their lives follow a familiar if grueling routine, but their real problem is that Town Square doesn’t schedule them for enough hours—most of them are barely getting by, even while working second or third jobs. When store manager Big Will announces he is leaving, the members of Movement spot an opportunity. If they play their cards right, one of them just might land a management job, with all the stability and possibility for advancement that that implies. The members of Team Movement band together to set a just-so-crazy-it-might-work plot in motion. A humane and darkly comic workplace caper that shines a light on the odds low-wage workers are up against in today’s economy, Help Wanted is a funny, moving tale of ordinary people trying to make a living.

Adelle discusses her work with Naomi Fry, along with a reading and book signing.
