Philanthropy Book Club | Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond
Friday, April 02, 2021, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM PDT
Category: Book Club

In Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they each struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Hailed as “wrenching and revelatory” (The Nation), “vivid and unsettling” (New York Review of Books), Evicted transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of twenty-first-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.

We look forward to seeing you on April 2nd.

While reading the book is highly recommended, we encourage all to participate and join in on the conversation. Please do not let not reading the book leave you out on these thoughtful and engaging discussions.
