The Diesel Readers discuss EVICTED

East Bay Booksellers welcomes you to The Diesel Readers Book Group discussion of Evicted, by Matthew Desmond, on Monday May 7th at 7pm.

WINNER OF THE 2017 PULITZER PRIZE FOR GENERAL NONFICTION

In Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur "Genius" Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Hailed as "wrenching and revelatory" (The Nation), "vivid and unsettling" (New York Review of Books), 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 Diesel Readers are an ongoing group, and is open to all. **
