Monday, July 30, 6:30 pm, Dorothy Busch Branch

Join us as the Dorothy Busch Branch welcomes  WDET’s “Detroit Today” host Stephen Henderson in a community book club discussion of Matthew Desmond’s 2017 Pulitzer Prize winning book Evicted: Poverty And Profit In The American City. In his book, Desmond puts forward an essential argument that housing insecurity is a driver of poverty rather than a symptom. Desmond’s academic research of poverty and eviction in America is woven together in a narrative style that follows several families through their struggle to find safety, stability, and affordability in a place called home.

Henderson and guests will discuss the prevalence and systemic issues with court-ordered evictions. Desmond’s recent work reveals Warren has one of the highest rates of court-ordered evictions in the nation. The group will look at the reasons behind that startling statistic. The book club meeting will also look at what housing insecurity looks like in Macomb County and the region.

No registration is required. For more information, see WDET’s event page.
