June Must-Read: Poverty, By America

When it comes to changing the conversation, this book will start a lot of spirited discussions as it asks difficult questions of readers of all political stripes.

Matthew Desmond’s new book draws back the lens to illustrate how poverty injures the impoverished—physically, financially, and spiritually—and how the wealthiest country in the world has developed a bifurcated system that favors those who are better off (in the form of tax breaks, hoarded benefits, and walled-off communities).
