Book Launch: Jessica Bruder presents Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century
In conversation with Dale Maharidge
Wine reception to follow
Journalist Jessica Bruder presents Nomadland, a revelatory work of in-depth narrative journalism about a new American workforce and a shift away from retirement as we know it. Nomadland explores the phenomenon of older, low-income Americans who can no longer afford to retire in the wake of the 2008 recession, and the nomadic labor communities they form. From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California, Bruder tells a compelling, eye-opening tale of the dark underbelly of the American economy--one that foreshadows the precarious future that may await many more of us. Bruder presents her work in conversation with her longtime colleague and fellow journalist Dale Maharidge, with a wine reception to follow.
