Housing Initiatives of Princeton – Private Reception with Matthew Desmond, New York Times Bestselling Author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City

May 18, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$60

Housing Initiatives of Princeton is proud to present their Author Series, which is focused on one of the most challenging issues facing the low-income working families in our community: finding, and keeping, affordable housing. On Wednesday, May 18, they will host a private reception with Matthew Desmond, author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.

Matthew Desmond is a professor of the social sciences at Harvard University and co-director of the Justice and Poverty Project. He is the author of On the Fireline, co-author of two books on race, and editor of a collection of studies on severe deprivation in America. In 2015, Desmond was awarded a MacArthur “Genius” grant.

Tickets are $60 per person ($40 is tax deductible), with wines curated by Kelly R. Mitchell and hors d’oeuvres by Jammin’ Crepes. Books will be available for purchase from HIP Friend Labyrinth Books.

Launched in 2001, Housing Initiatives of Princeton (HIP) helps low-income working families and individuals in and around Princeton avoid homelessness. While providing transitional housing and temporary rental assistance, HIP equips families with tools for self-sufficiency, acting as a bridge between homelessness and hope.
