At this time of year, lots of publications come out with their “best book of the year” lists. A book that shows up on numerous lists of best business books is “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City”.
Evicted” immerses readers in the lives of families and individuals trapped in — or thriving off — the private-rental market for the poor, a brutal world in which landlords have all the power and tenants feel all the pain.
This book looks like an interesting read and calls to mind the recent articles in the Spartanburg Herald Journal on affordable housing. Check out your copy of “Evicted” from your Spartanburg County Public Libraries.
