Please note that this program will be held at Sidney Harman Hall at the Shakespeare Theater Company, only a few blocks from the National Building Museum. The exhibition will be open from 56 pm at the Museum.

How can we address the eviction crisis in America? Author and Eviction Lab founder Matthew Desmond transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of 21st-century America’s most devastating problems. The Evicted exhibition, a collaboration with Desmond, will be open before the program. The exhibition and this program are free. Desmond will sign copies of his book, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, after the talk.

Reserve your copy when reserving your free ticket. Reserved copies will be available for pick up at the talk. Unable to attend the program but interested in ordering the book? Find it at the Museum Shop.
