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.
