An Evening with Matthew Desmond

Matthew Desmond, author of "Evicted" and "Poverty, by America"

Matthew Desmond is a MacArthur “genius,” a Princeton sociologist and author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.” Desmond’s latest book, the instant #1 New York Times bestseller, “Poverty, by America,” investigates why the United States, the richest country on earth, has more poverty than any other advanced democracy.
On Dec. 12 at the Fox Tucson Theatre, Desmond will present his new book and its findings – along with potential solutions to poverty in America – during this lively event, which will include an audience Q&A, followed by a book signing.
This special engagement with one of the most important and respected sociologists of our time is presented by Primavera Foundation, as it marks its 40th anniversary. All net proceeds will help Primavera continue its vital mission of providing pathways out of poverty in southern Arizona.
