Get Real Nonfiction Book Discussion: "The Address Book"

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Portage District Library
Conference Room 220

Event Details

Join us on the third Monday of the month for a compelling discussion about various nonfiction topics. December's book discussion will be on The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power by Deirdre Mask.  Copies of the book will be available at the Adult Information Desk about four weeks in advance while supplies last.  This book is also available through Libby as an ebook.

Book synopsis: Did you know that street addresses were not invented to help you find your way?  They were meant to find you.  In many places, your address (or lack thereof) can reveal your race, class status, and more.  The Address Book will uncover the stories behind some street names and their power to name, to hide, to decide who counts, who doesn't... and why.
