Stephanie Land was looking forward to starting college in her late 20s. To save money she moved in with her boyfriend. In short order she was pregnant, single, and poor. She tells her story of surviving by working as a maid, fighting her child’s father in court, and postponing her dreams in her new memoir Maid.
She’ll talk about that struggle at The Mark Twain House & Museum on Friday, January 25, at 7 p.m. with Susan Campbell, a Hartford Courant columnist and distinguished lecturer at the University of New Haven who writes frequently about poverty and homelessness.
