The Progressive magazine and A Room of One's Own Bookstore host a hybrid in-person / virtual event with journalist Ruth Conniff to discuss her new book Milked: How an American Crisis Brought Together Midwestern Dairy Farmers and Mexican Workers. A unique and fascinating exploration of rural farming communities, Milked connects issues of labor, immigration, race, food, economics, and the seismic shifts in U.S.-Mexico relations to reveal how two seemingly disparate groups of people have come to rely on each other, how they are subject to the same global economic forces, and how, ultimately, the bridges of understanding that they have built can lead us toward a more constructive politics and a better world.
