PBS NewsHour

Streamed live 54 minutes ago

Our March/April book club book for Now Read This is Jessica Bruder’s “Nomadland,” which chronicles the growing community of transient older Americans who have taken to the road in search of seasonal work. The nomads Bruder followed were usually workers who did not completely recover from the 2008 Recession. Without enough saved for retirement, and unable to pay off their mortgages, they moved their lives into RVs and trailers, congregating in camps stretching from North Dakota to California to Texas. “Nomadland” served as inspiration for the new film of the same name, directed by Chloé Zhao and starring Frances McDormand. On Thursday, April 15 at 7:00pm ET, PBS NewsHour’s Jeffrey Brown will pose your questions about the book to Bruder.
