Shelf Life: Hear from best-selling author Stephanie Land at Missoula Public Library

An Evening with Author Stephanie Land

In partnership with Fact & Fiction bookstore, Missoula Public Library hosts New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Land, who will discuss her latest work, “Class: A Memoir of Motherhood, Hunger, and Higher Education,” with a book signing to follow. When Stephanie Land set out to write her memoir “Maid,” she never could have imagined what was to come. Handpicked by President Barack Obama as one of the best books of 2019, the book was called “an eye-opening journey into the lives of the working poor” (People).
