City of Asylum Bookstore Hosts September Book Club

City of Asylum Bookstore at Alphabet City will be holding its September Book Club meeting on Tuesday, September 25 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. The September Book is Pulitzer Prize winner EVICTED: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond

In Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. 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.

The City of Asylum Bookstore Book Club meets at Alphabet City, located at 40 West North Avenue. For more information or to RSVP, please email the book club coordinator, Laura McGaha.
