If homelessness seems a hopeless, intractable problem, it's because we haven't been focusing the phenomena's the true causes. Through meticulous research and study, Gregg Colburn and Clayton Aldern have uncovered the surprising actual causes of homelessness, which they detail in their new book, "Homelessness is a Housing Problem." On May 4, 2023 at 6:30pm, Colburn comes to the Bainbridge Island Public Library to share the results of their research. Colburn will reveal how housing market conditions, not personal factors, are the main drivers of homelessness in different cities and will explain why some places have much higher rates of homelessness than others, and what can be done to address this urgent issue. The talk will take place at the Bainbridge Public Library, 1270 Madison Ave N, on May 4, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from a leading housing scholar and a data journalist on this important issue.
Homelessness is a Housing Problem is available now at Eagle Harbor Book Co. and will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
Please RSVP for the event through the Bainbridge Island Public Library.
