About the event

Doors at 6 PM // Event starts at 6:30 PM

When Stephanie Land set out to write Maid, she never could have imagined what was to come. The best-selling memoir (and inspiration for the hit Netflix series!) was a story about a housecleaner, but it was also a story about a woman with a dream. In Class, Land takes us with her as she finishes college and pursues her writing career. Facing barriers at every turn including a byzantine loan system, not having enough money for food, navigating the judgments of professors and fellow students who didn’t understand the demands of attending college while under the poverty line—Land finds a way to survive once again, finally graduating in her mid-thirties.

Class paints an intimate and heartbreaking portrait of motherhood as it converges and often conflicts with personal desire and professional ambition. Who has the right to create art? Who has the right to go to college? And what kind of work is valued in our culture? Class grapples with these questions, offering a searing indictment of America’s education system and an inspiring testimony of a mother’s triumph against all odds.

 

Join Montana Book Company at St. Paul's United Methodist Church to hear from Stephanie about her journey from Maid through Class, and stick around for an audience Q&A and book signing.

Maid is avaiable on both hardcover and paperback and Class is available for preorder from Montana Book Company.
