SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: We’re pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for our 2017 gala celebration will be Craig Lambert, author of Shadow Work: The Unpaid, Unseen Jobs That Fill Your Day. In Shadow Work, Craig shines a light on all the jobs that have slipped into our daily routines; pumping gas, bagging groceries, and handling our own bank transactions are just a few examples of the many jobs once performed by paid workers that corporations now have us doing for ourselves.

Craig’s talk will describe the phenomenon in general, and also examine in particular how the explosion of user-generated content on the Internet has dramatically lessened opportunities for paid, professional writers.

Craig is also the author of Mind Over Water: Lessons on Life from the Art of RowingHe was a long-time deputy editor of  Harvard Magazine.

OUR OWN SPECIAL SPEAKERS: Mid-party, we’ll have a reading at which six of the 2016 authors will each give us a 5-minute tease of the flavor of their books.

COST: Suggested donation $10.
