What if a community came together to read and discuss a book? This is a long-standing tradition in our community. Each year Multnomah County Library hosts Everybody Reads – an event designed to support and nurture a community conversation about a book. Portland Community College is again joining the conversation as an official partner. This year’s book is Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond. All events take place Winter term. Get involved! Read In January 2017, get a copy of the book at the library. Return it or pass it on to a friend, coworker or another student so that others can participate. Note: PCC Library has copies on reserve for students. Ask at any Checkout desk.
