Brown Book Club: “Evicted”
Dec 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

evictedThe Brown Book Club will meet on Sunday, December 10, to discuss Evicted: Poverty & Profit in the American City, by Matthew Desmond..  We’ll begin at 6pm with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, December 8 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.

In Evicted, Harvard sociologist and MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they 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 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.

Welcome to the Brown Community in DC!

Dear DC area Brunonians,

We are excited to be stepping into the leadership of the Brown Club of DC (BCDC). It is a privilege to be able to build upon the great legacy left to us by our immediate past Co-Presidents, Melea Atkins ’10 and Sean Siperstein ’05. We look forward to their continued service to Brown and wise counsel.

This organization exists to serve your needs and we take that responsibility seriously. We are hitting the ground running, with a variety of social, networking and service events planned for July. We hope that you will make time in your busy lives to participate in the activities that interest you.

We also recognize and appreciate the loyalty and enthusiasm of Brown alums all over the DC Metro area, and we want to provide opportunities for all of you to share your talents and interests with us. Many of our best events started as suggestions from alums just like you. Please connect with us at any of these activities, or contact us directly by email or social media if you have ideas or comments that you’d like to share regarding future events and initiatives.

We look forward to a year of fellowship, learning and fun!
