Books Sandwiched In welcomes Gabe Cline-Snell and panelists

Join Gabrielle Cline-Snell as she leads a panel discussion of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond on Wednesday, November 15, noon–1:00 in the East Tennessee History Center. Our panelists will discuss the book, the cycle of poverty and homelessness, and local solutions and resources.

There is hardly anything so essential as having a place to sleep and call home. "Evicted reveals how hard it is for those living in poverty to remain housed," Cline-Snell said. "It is an accurate reflection of the struggles faced by many in our Knoxville community who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless."


 Panelists are all members of the Knoxville Homeless Coalition: Gabe Cline-Snell, Volunteer Ministry Center's Chief Clinical Services Officer (top left); Misty Goodwin, Knoxville-Knox County Community Action Committee's Homeward Bound Program (top right); Bruce Spangler, Chief Executive Officer of Volunteer Ministry Center (bottom left); Lisa Higginbotham, Knoxville Homeless Management Information System data analyst (bottom right).
