Join Clark librarian Laura Robinson for a summer session of the Alumni & Friends Virtual Book Club, where she will be discussing Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder.
This New York Times bestseller and inspiration for Chloe Zhao’s winning film starring Frances McDormand, investigates the new, low-cost labor pool made up largely of transient older Americans. On frequently-traveled routes between seasonal jobs, Bruder meets people from all walks of life: a former professor, a McDonald’s vice president, a minister, a college administrator, and a motorcycle cop, among many others — including her irrepressible protagonist, a onetime cocktail waitress, Home Depot clerk, and general contractor named Linda May.
Joining the Alumni & Friends Virtual Book Club is easy and participation can be at your own pace:
- Please register to reserve your place for the June session. Borrow the featured book from your local library or purchase from your favorite retailer.
- Read the selected title prior to the discussion.
- One week before the book club meets, you will receive an email with preparatory discussion questions to help you prepare for the session with Laura Robinson.
