Brandon Christopher- The Job Pirate

Over the past 20 years, Brandon Christopher has worked at more than 82 different jobs—including stints as everything from a mortuary driver and a florist to a rehab line operator and a plumber's assistant. In his new book of essays chronicling over two dozen of those jobs, he offers a witty, hilarious, and irreverent glimpse into the working lives of everyday Americans. With a penchant for constant reinvention, a distaste for any idea of career stability, and the ability to make the most mundane task fascinating and exciting career hollow, Christopher puts himself out there as both a plunderer of the American dream and the hero for a new workforce of Gen-Xers and Millennials. Joining us for a reading and signing of his new book, Christopher will share his adventures in the American workforce with us. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Audience: Singles. College Students.

Flower Farmers: The Story of the Hmong in Puget Sound

Saturday Speaker Series FLOWER FARMERS: THE STORY OF THE HMONG IN PUGET SOUND The Hmong Association of Washington.

During the Vietnam War, CIA-backed Hmong guerillas fought a secret war against the communists. Their story of fleeing Laos after the war, resettling in a new land and transferring their agricultural skills to carve out a new livelihood, is a remarkable one. Don’t miss hearing about this exciting slice of Puget Sound history!
