Third Friday Book Group

  • Conference Room 4801 France Avenue South Minneapolis, MN, 55410 United States (map)

The Third Friday book group will meet in the conference room on Friday, July 19 at 9:30 a.m.

We will discuss Barbara Ehrenreick's book, Nickled and Dimed, about those people in America who work low-wage jobs, as the author says "the underbelly of capitalism." Ehrenreick researched her topic by leaving her journalist job for a time and learning first hand the challenges of working at or below minimum wage. Her jobs included working as a hotel maid, waitress, house cleaner, nurse aide, and Wal-Mart associate in various parts of the country. It is a thought-provoking read. Please join in our discussion.

Looking ahead to August, we will read Lady Long Rider by Bernice Ende. Dorothy Ellerbroek had the opportunity to hear Ms. Ende firsthand at a presentation at the library in Waconia last month and can vouch for the credibility of this remarkable author's life adventures. There are a few new copies of the book to share, if the local libraries are limited in availability.
