One Community Reads: Evicted at Cuyahoga County Library – Bay Village Branch
January 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
One Community Reads is a collaboration amongst the City Club of Cleveland, Playhouse Square and all nine local public library systems to create a shared reading experience for the Greater Cleveland community.
This year’s selection, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Dr. Matthew Desmond, will transform our understanding of poverty and the centrality of home. One Community Reads programming will include book discussions, film screenings and panel discussions on the topics of economic exploitation, inequality and housing – and how we might come together as a community to address the devastating problem of eviction.
The purpose of the discussions is to engage both the public and community leaders in a conversation about the effect of housing insecurity on the region and shed light on the work being done by fair housing, veterans affairs, mental health and social services. Join in finding real solutions to the housing crisis and in celebrating the power of books to create a stronger community.
