Author Margaret Zhao led our first day-time book group, and it was such a success that the group wanted to continue. We now read a book of the group’s choice “a book a month,” focusing on books portraying social and/or historical relevance. After reading, we gather to discuss the book. The idea is to share our impressions of the book and our own life experiences. Please join us and bring a friend!
August: Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond. The author follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. The book is said to be full of unforgettable scenes of hope and loss, and certainly represents a visible social reality in today’s economy. For August, we ask that each reader bring 2 questions about the book, and also share your favorite part, character, or quote.
