Join author Kim Kelly for a discussion of her book "Fight Like Hell: The Untold Story of American Labor." Registration is required for this live virtual event, the first in our Behind the Book series.

Author and journalist Kim Kelly's writing on labor, class, politics, and culture has appeared in such publications as The New RepublicThe Washington PostThe New York TimesThe BafflerThe Nation, The Columbia Journalism Review, and Esquire. In her book Fight Like Hell: The Untold Story of American Labor, Kelly shows how the rights the American worker has today—the forty-hour workweek, workplace-safety standards, restrictions on child labor, protection from harassment and discrimination on the job—were earned with literal blood, sweat, and tears. She casts light on the often overlooked contributions of silenced, misrepresented, or forgotten leaders in the labor movement.

A regular labor columnist for Teen Vogue since 2018, Kelly has also worked as a video correspondent for More Perfect Union, The Real News Network, and Means TV. Previously, she was the heavy metal editor at “Noisey,” VICE’s music vertical, and was an original member of the VICE Union. A third-generation union member, she is a member of the Industrial Workers of the World’s Freelance Journalists Union as well as a member and elected councilperson for the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE). She was born in the heart of the South Jersey Pine Barrens, and currently lives in Philadelphia with a hard-workin’ man, a couple of taxidermied bears, and way too many books.

This program is a live virtual event and will be held via Zoom. Registration is required. Event login information will be emailed to registrants the day before the program.
