2019-2021 Campus Common Book
Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond
Students, staff, and faculty at Saint Paul College come from diverse backgrounds. The stories in our 2019-2021 Common Book,
Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond, relate to many of our experiences. With this Common Book we make connections between our courses and significant issues such as poverty, economic exploitation, and desperate choices.
The purpose of the Common Book is to build community and invite further engagement in our college core values of excellence, integrity, and respect. We invite you to read this year’s book, join in discussions, and participate in our events.
