Daniel Seddiqui, whose cross-country journey to work one job in every state is documented in his book, “50 Jobs in 50 States,” made an appearance this morning on “Today’s THV This Morning.” I moderated Seddiqui’s Sunday session at the Arkansas Literary Festival (which continues through Wednesday), and since then, he’s been busy making the rounds, speaking at schools and to business groups.
Later today, he’ll speak to students at Little Rock Central High School and members of the Little Rock business community at the Downtown Little Rock Rotary Club meeting. His message, based on an intense year of travel working an array of jobs in every state, is one of perseverance, hard work, open-mindedness and hope in a tough economy.
I highly recommend his book, an entertaining assemblage of snapshots showing how people work and live in modern America. You can still meet the author himself at a book signing from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at Books-A-Million in North Little Rock. And you can buy his book right now on Amazon.com: the Kindle version is here, and the good old-fashioned physical edition is here.
After the jump, watch the full interview with Tom Brannon on “Today’s THV This Morning.”
