book discussion: Evicted

Monday, June 5, 2017 (All day)
library program room

Our next book for discussion will be the book that won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction, Evicted by Matthew Desmond. Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, June 5:

• at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
• and again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.

In this brilliant, heartbreaking book, Matthew Desmond takes us into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge.  

Even in the most desolate areas of American cities, evictions used to be rare. But today, most poor renting families are spending more than half of their income on housing. In vivid, intimate prose, Desmond provides a ground-level view of one of the most urgent issues facing America today.  

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!
