Join us for an insightful discussion of Matthew Desmond's book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. You need not be a LWV member nor have read the book (but, of course, it helps). Check out the Book Tavern's selection and get yours today.
In this groundbreaking book, Harvard sociologist and 2015 MacArthur “Genius” Award winner Matthew Desmond takes readers into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee, where families spend most of their income on housing and where eviction has become routine—a vicious cycle that deepens our country’s vast inequality. Based on years of embedded fieldwork and painstakingly gathered data, Evicted transforms our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving a devastating, uniquely American problem.
