"Working in the Shadows" Author at CCC

Gabriel Thompson, author of “Working in the Shadows”, makes two public presentations as part of Clatsop Community College’s Campus Reads event.

The book chronicles the author’s year-long experiment working undercover in the low-wage immigrant workforce. Thompson’s experiences included working in Arizona lettuce fields, a chicken slaughterhouse in Alabama, and the streets of New York making deliveries by bicycle.

Thompson will make two free public presentations on Wednesday February 8  in Astoria to discuss his experiences and other issues related to immigrant workers:

  • Clatsop Community College, Columbia Hall, Room 219 at 12pm and
  • The Liberty Theater McTavish Room at 6:30pm.

Gabriel Thompson’s visit is made possible by the Clatsop Cultural Coalition, the Auzten Foundation and CCC faculty and staff.
