Virtual Evicted Book Club

October 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Come join us over Zoom to discuss the book Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City is a 2016 non-fiction book by the American author Matthew Desmond. Set in the poorest areas of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the book follows eight families struggling to pay rent to their landlords during the financial crisis of 2007–2008.  This book is a brilliant mix of stories and broader research which provide insight into why and how people can end up in hard situations.

Books are available through Lincoln City Libraries, the Nebraska History Museum and other sources.  Please register and we will make sure you get a book!
