Backstreet Books to host book signing with local author

Ever felt unappreciated or underpaid at your job? Local author Tracy L. Kinne understands your plight and shares her feelings on the subject in her book, “On Sale: Employers Get Good Workers Dirt Cheap.”

In 2007, she accepted a buyout and left the newspaper she had worked at for the past 19 years.

Six months later, the Great Recession began. She rode out the recession, and the years after, as a low-paid sales associate and cashier at a chain store. “On Sale: Employers Get Good Workers Dirt Cheap” is her first book, a memoir of her four years at the store she calls Big Box. It is the story of Kinne and her coworkers, an under appreciated, underpaid, but intelligent, hard-working group of compassionate, down-to-earth individuals.

A graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University, where she earned a bachelor’s of science degree in newspapers, Kinne has worked as an editor and reporter for several publications including the Watertown Daily Times, The Post Standard, and the Oswego County Weeklies.

The signing will be held Saturday, Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
