An Evening with Matthew Desmond at Fox Tucson Theatre

December 12, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$25 – $50

Matthew Desmond is a MacArthur “genius,” a Princeton sociologist and author of the Pulitzer Prize winning bestseller “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.”

Desmond’s latest book, the instant #1 New York Times bestseller, “Poverty, by America,” investigates why the United States, the richest country on earth, has more poverty than any other advanced democracy. Why does this land of plenty allow one in every eight of its children to go without basic necessities, permit scores of its citizens to live and die on the streets, and authorize its corporations to pay poverty wages?

Desmond will present his new book and its findings – along with potential solutions to poverty in America – during this lively event, which will include an audience Q&A, followed by a book signing.

This special engagement with one of the most important and respected sociologists of our time is presented by Primavera Foundation, as it marks its 40th anniversary. All net proceeds will help Primavera continue its vital mission of providing pathways out of poverty in southern Arizona.
