Moderated by Pamela Rothstein, Director of Lifelong Learning
Members will find information about the timing of this event in the weekly E-minder and newsletter.
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Evicted reimagines the debate on poverty, making a “provocative and compelling” (NPR) argument about why it persists in America: because the rest of us benefit from it.
“Urgent and accessible . . . Its moral force is a gut punch.”—The New Yorker
From Matthew Desmond, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Evicted, comes a sociologist's study of poverty, American-style, and what we can do about it. It's a manifesto for action. Let's get together and discuss his latest book and calls to action from a Jewish perspective.
