Evicted Kick Off, HACC Gettysburg Campus
Join us for a reading of this New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winning novel written by Harvard sociologist and 2015 MacArthur “Genius” Award winner Matthew Desmond. He takes readers into the poorest neighborhoods in Milwaukee, where families spend most of their income on housing and where eviction has become a routine – especially for single mothers. Evicted transforms our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving a devastating, uniquely American problem. Novels are available in the campus library and for sale in the campus bookstore for $11.55. Join the online discussion blog https://libguides.hacc.edu/evicted and sign up for a campus book discussion group scheduled for November or January.
