Image of the Day: Celebrating Working

This year, the New Press is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the publication of Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do, Studs Terkel's classic oral history on the subject. Already, the New Press has compiled quotations from Terkel and others about his Working as well as links to some of the many interviews Terkel conducted over 50 years on WFMT in Chicago of a range of people.

In addition, the New Press has partnered with the North Figueroa Bookshop in Los Angeles on a mural honoring the book. (One of the building's outside walls is used for murals.) Appropriately the publisher has a special work connection with the store, which is a joint venture of Unnamed Press and Rare Bird: Unnamed publisher and co-founder Chris Heiser was a New Press intern in the 1990s, in the Press's early days.
