Author Talk: Stephanie Land - Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay and a Mother's Will to Survive

Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Evicted meets Nickel and Dimed in Stephanie Land's memoir, Maid, about working as a maid, a beautiful and gritty exploration of poverty in America. 'My daughter learned to walk in a homeless shelter.' 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. 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.
