Legacy of Work The authors talked about the experiences of the working classes in America. Following their prepared remarks, they responded to questions from the audience.

Mr. Carlebach is the author of Working Stiffs: Occupational Portraits in the Age of Tintypes, published by Smithsonian Institution Press. The book examines the historical significance of tintypes - a cheap photograph that was popular among laborers and their families during the late 1800s. His presentation included a slide show of photographs from the book. Ms. Ehrenreich is the author of Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America, published by Owl Books. Her work sheds light on the precarious lives led by the invisible workforce that fuels the service economy. close
