Evicted: Poverty & Profit in the American City
by Matthew Desmond
Based on years of embedded fieldwork and painstakingly gathered data, Matthew Desmond transforms our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving a devastating, uniquely American problem. Its unforgettable scenes of hope and loss remind us of the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible.
The PRC Book Group, "One Book, One People", at the People's Resource Center brings volunteers, staff, and clients together to discuss some of the best books written about the various countries and cultures of the people we serve, and to get to know one another better. We even get to taste some of the great foods from around the world!!
2nd Wednesdays of the month at lunch (12 - 1:30) in the Megan Bradshaw Learning Center, 201 S. Naperville Road, Wheaton (on the second floor of our building).
Borrow or buy your own book. Bring your own lunch. Rice and beans will be served.
