Alumni Events

  • All Campus Author Alumni Book Club:
    Hidden America

    book cover

    From Coal Miners to Cowboys, an Extraordinary Exploration of the Unseen People Who Make This Country Work

    Join Jeanne Marie Laskas, this year's All-Campus Author, as she reads from and discuss her book, HIDDEN AMERICA. Alumni are encouraged to read the book and join the conversation via online live streaming or join the discussion on campus. For an opportunity to have your questions answered from Laskas submit questions to alumni@chatham.edu.

    Five hundred feet underground, Jeanne Marie Laskas asked a coal miner named Smitty, “Do you think it’s weird that people know so little about you?” He replied, “I don’t think people know too much about the way the whole damn country works.”

    Hidden America intends to fix that. Like John McPhee and Susan Orlean, Laskas dives deep into her subjects and emerges with character-driven narratives that are gripping, funny, and revelatory. In Hidden America, the stories are about the people who make our lives run every day—and yet we barely think of them.

    Praise for HIDDEN AMERICA...

    "Oprah Must-Read Best Book"

    "Laskas gives voice–as well as dignity and poetry–to America's blue-collar ranks."

    "Each of these profiles rings true, offering an enlightening, entertaining and often poignant glimpse into occupations that most of us know little about."
