Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Saturday, May 18, 2019
This was among several unregistered books brought to this afternoon's BookCrossing Meetup in Porter Square, Cambridge, by new member Cris. It's an eye-opening and often harrowing look at eight families in Milwaukee as they're threatened with eviction - something that I've never had to face, so there was a lot of new information for me. In many ways it reminded me of Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich, highlighting the perils of an economy that leaves a large segment of the population living paycheck to paycheck, if that...

The author recommends the website justshelter.org for ways to help families avoid eviction or get back on their feet afterwards.
