    Brazos Bookstore is pleased to welcome Daniel Seddiqui, Friday, March 18, 12:00 - 2:00 PM. Featuring his book 50 Jobs in 50 States: One Man's Journey of Discovery Across America. Pack a brown bag and join us for a great lunchtime event!

    Like lots of college grads, Daniel Seddiqui was having a hard time finding a job. But despite more than forty rejections, he knew opportunities had to exist. So he set out on an extraordinary quest: fifty jobs in fifty states in fifty weeks. And not just any jobs-he chose professions that reflected the culture and economy of each state.

    Working as everything from a cheesemaker in Wisconsin, a border patrol agent in Arizona, and a meatpacker in Kansas to a lobsterman in Maine, a surfing instructor in Hawaii, and a football coach in Alabama, Daniel chronicles how he adapted to the wildly differing people, cultures, and environments. He became a roving news item, appearing on CNN, Fox News, World News Tonight, MSNBC, and the Today show - which was good preparation for his stint as a television weatherman!
