Petit Branch Library and Soule Branch Library are hosting a book discussion on Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond, led by Sally Santangelo, Executive Director of CNY Fair Housing. Evicted makes readers aware of the epidemic of evictions surrounding the 2008 economic crisis by focusing on eight families in the Milwaukee area.
