Legal Aid bringing best-selling author Matthew Desmond to Lincoln

Legal Aid is excited to announce Matthew Desmond, best-selling author of “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City” (2016), will provide a free public lecture on Thursday evening, October 8, at the Sheldon Museum of Art Auditorium on the UNL campus.

Desmond won the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, Carnegie Medal, and PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award for Nonfiction for “Evicted,” which has precipitated a huge nationwide advocacy response to evictions and low-income tenant rights, including the creation of The Eviction Lab, a source of data on evictions, poverty, and inequality used across the country.

Desmond’s free public lecture is co-sponsored with the local coalition of housing advocates and organizations involved in addressing low-income housing needs in Lincoln and Nebraska.

More details about this event will be available at LegalAidOfNebraska.org and Legal Aid’s Facebook page as the event gets closer.
