Description

In this audiovisual recording from Thursday, March 24, 2022, as part of the 53rd Annual UND Writers Conference: “Communities and the Individual,” Jessica Bruder reads excerpts from Nomadland. Bruder discusses what it means to be an immersion journalist and what brought her to write Nomadland. Bruder also responds to audience questions about the dynamic between author and those who share their stories for a novel like Nomadland, the connection between immersive journalism and the new journalism literary movement, the process of collecting, organizing, and transforming material into a novel, how faithful the film version of Nomadland was to the book, and if Linda ever got to build her Earthship.
