Join us at 6:15 pm at the Parsonage on Wednesday, June 12 to discuss our monthly selection "EVICTED." Author Matthew Desmond is one of the keynote speakers at the UCC's General Synod in Milwaukee in June. The UCC has proclaimed the book as an "all church read" in conjunction with General Synod.
From Amazon: In this brilliant, heartbreaking book, Matthew Desmond takes us into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge. Arleen is a single mother trying to raise her two sons on the $20 a month she has left after paying for their rundown apartment. Scott is a gentle nurse consumed by a heroin addiction. Lamar, a man with no legs and a neighborhood full of boys to look after, tries to work his way out of debt. Vanetta participates in a botched stickup after her hours are cut. All are spending almost everything they have on rent, and all have fallen behind.
