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.
