Multnomah County Library’s annual community reading event, featuring a powerful book for the entire city to read. This year’s Everybody Reads selection is Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond. In partnership with Multnomah County Library and The Library Foundation, Literary Arts is proud to present a lecture by Desmond as the culminating event of the 15th annual Everybody Reads. Tickets start at just $15: http://www.portland5.com/arlene-schnitzer-concert-hall/events/everybody-reads-2017 Group rates area available fororders of eight or more. Find info here: http://www.literary-arts.org/event/everybody-reads-2017/ Through the lives of eight low-income families, Evicted sheds light on the complex issues surrounding housing and its link to poverty. The book was selected as a The New York Times Editor’s Choice and the nonfiction selection for 10 Best Books of 2016, and Wall Street Journal’s Hottest Spring Nonfiction Books. “Evicted is a candid look into issues that are so visible in our own community. With this selection, we hope to contribute to the critical and difficult conversations happening in our community around poverty, affordable housing and homelessness.” –Vailey Oehlke, Director of Libraries Desmond, a Harvard sociologist and MacArthur Fellowship recipient, offers a national perspective on one of the most pressing issues facing Portland. Through tireless reporting, Desmond exposes the truth about housing in America and offers fresh ideas for solving the devastating problem of eviction. The 2017 Everybody Reads shared reading experience is an opportunity for Portland to discuss these issues, learn from each other, and create tangible solutions for our community. In January 2017, the Everybody Reads program kicks off with a city-wide shared reading experience. Pick up a copy of Evicted at your local library and join book discussions and community events around Portland, leading up to the author event on March 9. Find more information at multcolib.org. The 2016 Everybody Reads author event is sponsored in part by Ann and Mark Edlen, A to Z Wineworks, TheStandard, AHA Agency, The Oregonian, and Oregon Public Broadcasting- OPB. https://www.facebook.com/events/2148927431998962/
