It's Alright: A Truckface Anthology Vol. 2

Volume 2

Through strikes, standardized testing, violence, bouffant wigs, school closings, and drawings of wieners, Truckface documents the life of one Chicago public school teacher. Simultaneously hopeful and hopeless, this volume contains Issues 12-16. 5.5'x7', B&W, Perfect bound, 446 pages.

I have loved LB's zines since I first got my hands on them so many years ago. This volume collects issues 12-16 which follows her transformation from "a naive and insecure first-year teacher" to "a naive and unsure fifth year teacher" (LB's words.) Her writing provides a deep look into the complexities and challenges of the public education system for high schoolers in Chicago including the 2012 CPS teacher's strike. Reading LB's account of learning to be a teacher, the interactions and connections she makes with her students, and the struggles she and her students face each day to create a safe, healthy learning environment is equal parts humbling, heartbreaking, and inspiring.

LB makes you want to be a better person. To work harder and try harder and stand up for what you know is right. Despite it all, LB's love for her job and her students shines through on every page, the guiding force for why she does what she does. This is essential reading, and it's all gathered together for you! Pick it up today. Like, now. Seriously! -KA
