Book Nook: The Daughters of Erietown, by Connie Schultz


For the past half century working class Americans have watched as their economic status has been in decline. Manufacturing jobs went away. Labor unions have seen their power to protect American jobs dwindle. The lives of working class Americans are rarely depicted in fiction. Connie Schultz understands the lives of our working class citizens. She grew up in a working class family and her experiences and insights inform the action and inspired the characters in her novel "The Daughters of Erietown."

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
