Eviction is an issue of national importance, but it also plays out locally. Last year in Pima County, more than 13,000 evictions were filed in court and any more  happen that never make it to court.

In February and March, select Pima County Public Library book clubs will read Matthew Desmond's Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, a book that will change the way we look at poverty in America.

The series will culminate with a community dialogue, "The Eviction Problem in Pima County: What can we do?," led by Stacy Butler, director of the Innovation for Justice Program and founding member of Step Up to Justice.
