JTC Journal’s Exclusive Interview With Gabriel Thompson : JTC Journal

www.jtcjournal.com [cached]

On September 12, Thompson honored our students and staff with his presence.
As he was summarizing his work, Thompson brought the book to life. He began to read from the second part of his journey. Having the man behind the book read from it brings a different atmosphere to his work. He read his own words to an audience of students who have read the same book not too long ago. Thompson began to go in further detail about the struggles of the lives of those who lived like he did for months at a time. He was able to give up on this lifestyle any moment he so wished. Even though exposing these experiences to the world was quite the motivation, it wasn't as great as the mothers and fathers who knew the moment they gave up, their lives would spiral down. Before this project, Thompson didn't necessarily understand the other side. After his trips to Mexico to visit his fellow lettuce cutters, talks with the men in DSI and IQF, and having a sociopath as a boss, he realized how dedicated these migrant workers really were. Once his awe striking reading and compelling speech was over, he took questions from his readers in the audience. After overcoming their mild case of stage fright, questions began to ring in the auditorium. With Thompson hitting a variety of points throughout his speech, many types of questions were asked by Central students. One question Thompson was asked was where he attended college. He answered that he attended the School of Johnson Center. He was also asked if he could rename the book, what would he name it. After some thought, he replied that he liked the main title, but not so much the subtitle. His idea, which he couldn't remember at the time, was changed during editing. He went on about editing and how an author's work is often changed in the process. It may be for the better, but it sometimes takes away of the author's point. Although his title was changed, Thompson didn't think it impacted his work as negatively as he potentially could. Tags: exclusive interview, Gabriel Thompson, Joliet Central, Working in the Shadows
