Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew DesmondVernon Area Public Library District
This brilliant, heartbreaking book takes us into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge. Based on years of embedded fieldwork and painstakingly gathered data, this masterful book transforms our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving a devastating, uniquely American problem. A limited number of books will be available for checkout at the Adult Services desk starting in March.
Registration is recommended. Register online here, by telephone at 224-543-1485, or in person at any public service desk in the library.
