Event Details

Read and discuss the book, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond.

In Evicted, MacArthur "Genius" Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Evicted transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of 21st-century America's most devastating problems. Its unforgettable scenes of hope and loss remind us of the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible. Books will be available at the Main Reference desk one month before the discussion. Please register for the discussion when you pick up the book.
