You’re Invited: “Working” Lunches
Inspired by Studs Terkel’s 1974 book “Working: People Talk about What They Do All Day and How They Feel about What They Do” and created by Project&, “Working in America” is a national initiative that takes an intimate look at how we feel about what we do, or wish we did, all day long: work.
As part of the initiative, a speaker series will take place at the Harold Washington Library Center where speakers will lead small-group, lunchtime discussions about the trials and triumphs of working today.
Featured speakers will include those who work in policy, medicine and the arts.
