― Matthew Desmond, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City
The Week Seven CLSC selection features Matthew Desmond’s Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond’s Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller Evicted draws on years of embedded fieldwork and painstakingly gathered data to transform our understanding of inequity and economic exploitation in America. This CLSC Author Presentation will take place at 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday, August 9, 2022, in the Amphitheater in collaboration with the Chautauqua Lecture Series. If you’re not able to join us on the grounds, you can join us from home on CHQ Assembly.
