Evicted: Reading Group
July 7 @ 4:00 pm
3 Tuesdays: July 7, 13, and 21 at 4 p.m.
As racial injustice consumes our local and global attention, Beacon leaders in St. Paul will take read and discuss the Pulitzer Prize winning book Evicted, by Matthew Desmond. Desmond uses narrative nonfiction and a close lens on another Midwestern city with extreme racial inequality, Milwaukee, to explore the historical and present, systemic and intimate realities of our housing catastrophe. Participants are urged (though not required) to attend all three sessions. We’ll also incorporate supplemental materials, and take an intentionally race equity-focused lens with the understanding that many folks are familiar with the book but may not have had the chance to discuss it with a group in this way.
