CANCELLED: Randy Shaw - Generation Priced Out

Who Gets to Live in the New Urban America, a Social Science Book Talk & Signing

**Unfortunately due to weather conditions, this event has been cancelled

Randy Shaw is Director of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic, San Francisco's leading provider of housing for homeless single adults. He is the author of The Activist's Handbook: Winning Social Change in the 21st Century and others. Shaw will discuss and sign Generation Priced Out: Who Gets to Live in the New Urban America ($29.95 University of California Press), a call to action on one of the most talked-about issues of our time: how skyrocketing rents and home values are pricing the working and middle classes out of urban America.

Shaw tells the powerful stories of tenants, politicians, homeowner groups, developers, and activists in over a dozen cities impacted by the national housing crisis. From San Francisco to New York, Seattle to Denver, and Los Angeles to Austin, Generation Priced Out challenges progressive cities to reverse rising economic and racial inequality. This is a must-read for anyone concerned about the future of urban America.
