Books and Brews offsite Book Discussion

Join us at Stubborn Beauty Brewing 180 Johnson St, Middletown, CT 06457 for our offsite book discussion.

Our book, Maid : hard work, low pay, and a mother's will to survive by  Stephanie Land.

From Goodreads: "While the gap between upper middle-class Americans and the working poor widens, grueling low-wage domestic and service work--primarily done by women--fuels the economic success of the wealthy. 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.

Discussion will be facilitated by Christy Billings. Questions? (860) 347-2528 EXT 160 or cbillings@russelllibrary.org

Copies of the book are available for checkout at Russell Library's Borrowing Desk.

Our thanks again to Stubborn Beauty for having us in their local space! This event is sponsored by The Friends of the Russell Library.

Drop-in, no registration necessary. No purchase required.
