Desmond is a Princeton University sociologist who won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction for his book, “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.” Why is this important for Richmonders? Because we rank second in in the nation for cities with the highest eviction rates. Desmond should shine a light on the crisis. 6 p.m. Free. commonbook.vcu.edu.
