Book Reading by Margot Genger: Shift Happens

Join us on Thursday, April 11 at 4pm in the Library Fishbowl to hear Margot Genger read from her debut book Shift Happens - Breakdowns During Life's Long Hauls.  

HSU English Professor Emeritus Susan Bennett writes, "Out of desperation to escape the confines of her small Northern California town, Genger breaks every rule of her 1970s social class, gender, and upbringing to become a long-haul truck driver. Shift Happens will make you laugh, cringe, and celebrate as Margo navigates the underground life of long-haul truck driving with 11 different driving partners. She criss-crosses the U.S. delivering everything from Hustler Magazines to Washington State apples - sees both the beauty and the meanness that is America - and eventually realizes what she values in 'home'."
