Books and Brews: Nomadland

July 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Let’s talk books while enjoying a cold one!

This month, we’re reading Nomadland by Jess Bruder. A limited number of books are available to borrow. The eBook is available on Libby and the audiobook is available on hoopla digital.

Employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool, made up largely of transient older Americans. Finding that social security comes up short, often underwater on mortgages, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in late-model RVs, travel trailers, and vans, forming a growing community of nomads: migrant laborers who call themselves “workampers.” Bruder hits the road to get to know her subjects, accompanying them from job to job in the dark underbelly of the American economy, while celebrating their resilience and creativity.
