2022 Beyond the Build Virtual Book Club – May 12

Register Today

You’re invited to our second-annual virtual Book Club! This year’s Luncheon Keynote speaker will be Jessica Bruder, author of the book Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century, which inspired the Academy Award winning movie of the same name. Bruder tells a compelling, eye-opening tale of the dark underbelly of the American economy—one that foreshadows the precarious future that may await many more of us. At the same time, she celebrates the exceptional resilience and creativity of these quintessential Americans who have given up ordinary rootedness to survive.

We will be hosting a virtual book club meeting with a guided discussion, and invite you to add your voice as we talk about how housing insecurity, low wages, and lacking support systems impact our community.  

Thursday, May 12th from 6:30-8:00pm via Zoom

*Please note, the Book Club will cover the entire book, but whether you’ve read the book, seen the movie, or are just interested in learning more, we encourage you to join the discussion!
