Country Bookshelf in Bozeman, MT is thrilled to welcome author debut Montana author Stephanie Land, who will discuss and sign the highly anticipated Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive, Thursday, February 7th at 6pm. This event is not to be missed!
“There are tens of millions of working poor people in this country. Many are invisible to other Americans or, worse, looked down on for their desperate need of federal assistance. Stephanie Land shares with us in painful detail her account of how as a working poor single mother she struggles to keep a roof over her and her daughter’s heads. How they lived on the edge of homelessness and what it is like to hope that there is enough money for food at the end of each month. How it tears the heart apart not to be able to give her daughter a secure life. How back breaking, exhausting, and low paying it is to be a house cleaner. Stephanie survives and reaches her goal of getting a college education and becoming a writer. We are left wondering how many other working poor are unable to reach their goals. This is a book everyone should read.” — Joan Grenier, Odyssey Bookshop, South Hadley, MA
