Matthew Desmond Book Event: Live & Virtual

Monday, May 1st, 2023

Why does the United States, the richest country on earth, have more poverty than any other advanced democracy?

Because too many of us benefit from it, says Matthew Desmond, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Poverty, by America.

Desmond makes a proposal for ending poverty in his talk Thursday, May 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the Richmond Public Library, 101 E. Franklin Street. Tickets are free but registration is required; the event will also be live-streamed.
