Political Action Book Club-- EVICTED

  • Subtext Bookstore 6 West 5th Street East Saint Paul, MN, 55101 United States (map)

Matthew Desmond's Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City is one of the most important books this decade, and one of the best books I (Matt!) have ever read. It shares the stories of eight families as they struggle to find secure housing in Milwaukee. Evicted transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of the twenty-first 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. This is required reading.
