FBA to discuss 'Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City'

The Book Club of the Federal Bar Association, Eastern District of Michigan Chapter, will discuss “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City” by Matthew Desmond on Tuesday, Feb. 5, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Room 290 (judges’ lunchroom) on the 2nd floor of the Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse in Detroit.

This book won the Pulitzer Prize and was recognized by the New York Times as one of 2016’s “10 Best Books.”

The primary goal of the FBA Book Club is to facilitate an informal but elevated dialogue between the bench and the bar.  The book club is non-partisan.  All points of view will be welcomed and respected.

FBA members can attend for free; non-members pay $10. Lunch is available for $10 or attendees can bring their own (note: separate registration is required for lunch purchase). Register online at www.fbamich.org or contact Mindy Herrmann at 248-231-7887 or fbamich@fbamich.org.
