Faculty & Staff Book Group

Faculty & Staff Book Group is a great way to connect with other staff members, who enjoy reading. FYE provides the group members with the books to read at the beginning of the fall, spring and summer semesters. The group then meets once every other week to discuss. Check out the book selected for this spring below. 

Spring 2018

evicted book cover

In Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur “Genius” Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Hailed as “wrenching and revelatory” (The Nation), “vivid and unsettling” (New York Review of Books), Evicted transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of 21st-century America’s most devastating problems. Its unforgettable scenes of hope and loss remind us of the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible.
