Short and Sweet with Alex Gaete
Thursday, October 10 at 10:00am. Main Floor Conference Room. Join the discussion and enjoy some sweets! Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich reveals low-rent America in all its tenacity, anxiety, and surprising generosity — a land of Big Boxes, fast food, and a thousand desperate stratagems for survival. Read it for the smoldering clarity of Ehrenreich’s perspective and for a rare view of how “prosperity” looks from the bottom. You will never see anything — from a motel bathroom to a restaurant meal — in quite the same way again. Books will be available in the library three weeks before each meeting.
