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.
