Book Brunch: 20th Book Prize Award-winning Book

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 | 11:00-12:30 | GLAS 311

The Book Brunch is an opportunity for faculty and students to discuss the prize-winning book, Temp: How American Work, American Business, and the American Dream Became Temporary, in anticipation of the author's visit to campus in March 2020.

The annual Susanne M. Glasscock Book Prize celebrates interdisciplinary research in the humanities by honoring a path-breaking book published in the previous year. The 20th Book Prize focuses on a monograph informed by academic expertise but with broader appeal to a wider than academic audience.
