Evicted Book Discussion

The library will host a discussion of Matthew Desmond’s groundbreaking new book, Evicted. Led by Professor  Russell Brooker of Alverno College, we’ll take a look at Desmond’s depiction of slumlords and the realities of home evictions in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, one of the most segregated cities in America.

The discussion will take place Tues. October 18th 6:30—8:00 pm in the library's Community Room. Copies of this book will be available for check out one month prior to the discussion. Registration is required.



Russell Brooker is a political science professor at Alverno College. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Chicago in 1981. At Alverno he teaches a variety of courses on elections, American politics, African American history, and statistics. He is currently writing a book on the American civil rights movement from 1865-1950.
