|Contemporary Books Discussion Group: Evicted by Matthew Desmond|
Event Type: Adult Programs|
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Join us for a discussion of EVICTED by Matthew Desmond. In this powerful work of narrative nonfiction, Desmond documents the months he spent living alongside tenants and landlords in Milwaukee, exploring the issues of poverty and homelessness in a segregated city. Taking readers on a journey into the daily lives of families facing eviction, sometimes repeatedly, the author creates a compelling and heartbreaking work that leaves readers wondering how we got here and what we can do to help.
Books available for loan on a first-come basis at the previous month's Contemporary Books Discussion and after that at the Information Desk. Newcomers are always welcome.
