Author Event: Stephanie Land

Join us on Sunday, November 19th at 7pm for a reading and signing with Stephanie Land for the release of her forthcoming book Class: A Memoir of Motherhood, Hunger, and Higher Education. The event will be held at the Missoula Public Library's Cooper Room and will be moderated by Hank Green.

Class paints an intimate and heartbreaking portrait of motherhood as it converges and often conflicts with personal desire and professional ambition. Who has the right to create art? Who has the right to go to college? And what kind of work is valued in our culture? In clear, candid, and moving prose, Class grapples with these questions, offering a searing indictment of America’s educational system and an inspiring testimony of a mother’s triumph against all odds.
