Tuesday, February 5: Missoula’s own Stephanie Land joins us for a reading from her new memoir, MAID: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive. 7pm.

In 2015, Stephanie wrote an impassioned viral essay in Vox, which detailed her life as a domestic worker, a field largely dominated by women working as housecleaners, nannies, and in elder care, jobs that often deny basic labor rights like minimum wage, overtime, sick and vacation pay. Emotionally raw yet heartwarming, MAID gives voice to the working poor, and is fueled by Stephanie’s courage to expose the reality of pursuing the American dream from below the poverty line.

Stephanie Land’s work has been featured in The New York TimesThe New York Review of Books, The Washington PostThe GuardianVoxSalon, and many other outlets. She lives in Missoula, Montana.
