Northshire Bookstore and Vermont Works for Women are thrilled to bring Stephanie Land, the author of Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive to Manchester where she will be interviewed live by Jennifer Oldham, the executive director of Vermont Works for Women. This event is free and open to the public!
Stephanie Land worked for years as a maid, pulling long hours while struggling as a single mom to keep a roof over her daughter’s head. In Maid, she reveals the dark truth of what it takes to survive and thrive in today’s inequitable society.
“We need more books like Maid, with the view from behind the fridge and under the couch. Stephanie Land has something to teach us about both sides of the inequality divide. Neither is what you are expecting.” —from the forward by Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed
Journalist Stephanie Land’s work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Vox, Salon, and many other outlets. She focuses on social and economic justice as a writing fellow through both the Center for Community Change and the Economic Hardship Reporting Project.
