The Maid 

The 1998 book Other People’s Dirt: A Housecleaner’s Curious Adventures documents author Louise Rafkin’s experiences as a maid encountering slobs and unlikely spiritualists, some of them celebrities. Also the writer of playful volumes that imagine what cats and dogs dream about, Rafkin applies her sense of humor in Other People’s Dirt to such surreal moments as having two hands in a toilet while listening to Barbra Streisand leave a message on the homeowner’s answering machine. Tonight at 6:30 p.m., Rafkin discusses her memoir at the Kansas City, Missouri, Central Library (14 West 10th Street). A 6 p.m. reception precedes the talk, which is free, although reservations are recommended. Call 816-701-3407 or RSVP online at kclibrary.org/rsvp/other peoplesdirt/#rsvp. Rafkin’s appearance is the final event in conjunction with The Way We Worked photo exhibit (portraits of American employees throughout the years), which is on display at the library through Sunday.
