    MacArthur Genius and Princeton sociologist Matthew Desmond is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize and the Andrew Carnegie Medal, among others.

    Praised as “an extraordinary feat of reporting and ethnography” by the Washington Post, Evicted transforms our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving a uniquely American problem. Writing in The New York Times Book Review, Barbara Ehrenreich said the book sets “a new standard for reporting on poverty.”

    Sponsored by the Changing the Conversation Committee, a partnership of CatholicCharities, Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region, Unity House, and the NYS Writers Institute.
