Working
Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do | Studs Terkel
4 posts | 5 read | 8 to read
Perhaps Studs Terkel's best-known book, Working is a compelling look at jobs and the people who do them. Consisting of over one hundred interviews with everyone from a gravedigger to a studio head, from a policeman to a piano tuner, this book provides an enduring portrait of people's feelings about their working lives.

Celebrating and recognizing all those who demonstrated, protested, and went on strike for more humane working conditions, and all who are working now to rebuild a strong labor movement. We have more work to do, undoubtedly; but I hope folks can enjoy a day of rest today. #LaborDay #FallTreasures

mom2bugnbee Who signed your Kindle cover? (Apologies if you've answered this before. I'm new here. 😊) 6y
Lola @mom2bugnbee Actually, you're the first to ask! Welcome to Litsy! M.O. Williams signed it at an author event he did at my local indie, @RoscoeBooks I read the book on my Kindle so didn't have a copy for him to sign. When I decided to have him sign the cover, I thought I'd fill it with author sigs but he took up the whole cover ???It says "Best Reader Ever" because it was clear from my questions I had read the book ? 6y
angrylilasian That's so cool! I'm hoping to make it to the next Read Harder meeting at RoscoeBooks! 6y
Lola @angrylilasian I'm planning to be there! Looking forward to meeting you! 6y
