'Shadow Work: The Unpaid, Unseen Jobs That Fill Your Day'

These days, we've become accustomed to booking our own travel and pumping our own gas, but there was a time when tasks like bagging groceries was a job someone was paid to do. We discuss the social and financial implications of filling our day with additional unpaid tasks.

  • Craig Lambert is the former deputy editor of Harvard Magazine and the author of Shadow Work: The Unpaid, Unseen Jobs That Fill Your Day.

Craig Lambert will speak about "shadow work" at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 5 at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library. For information, click here
