Book Release And Class Story Slam!

December 11, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join the Jamaica Plain Forum, Class Action, and friends for a story slam as we celebrate the release of Class Lives: Stories from Across our Economic DivideHear from Boston area contributors and editors to the anthology and participate in our mini-Story Slam with 5 minute stories and 1 minute stories.

The stories in Class Lives are both gripping and moving. Class Lives is an anthology of narratives dramatizing the lived experience of class in America. It includes forty original essays from authors who represent a range of classes, genders, races, ethnicities, ages, and occupations across the United States. Born into poverty, working class, the middle class, and the owning class—and every place in between—the contributors describe their class journeys in narrative form, recounting one or two key stories that illustrate their growing awareness of class and their place, changing or stable, within the class system.

Boston area editors include Chuck CollinsJennifer Ladd and Maynard Seider.
