Banned Books Challenge Discussion: “Working”
Tuesday, September 27, 2022
Join library staff Michael Skwara and Laura Watson for a Banned Books Challenge discussion of “Working” by Studs Terkel. We’ll listen to excerpts from the book and dive into why it was banned.
In the early 1970’s, author and radio host Studs Terkel went around the country with a reel-to-reel tape recorder interviewing people about their jobs. The result was the bestselling book, “Working.” The great interviewer of his day, Terkel celebrated the uncelebrated, and “Working” elevated the stories of ordinary people and their daily lives.
