Golden Gates: Fighting for Housing in America

March 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209 + Google Map

Spacious and affordable homes used to be the hallmark of American prosperity. Today, however, punishing rents and the increasingly prohibitive cost of ownership have turned housing into the foremost symbol of inequality and an economy gone wrong. In Golden Gates (Penguin Press), New York Times journalist Conor Dougherty chronicles America’s housing crisis from its West Coast epicenter, peeling back the decades of history and economic forces that brought us here and taking readers inside the activist uprisings that have risen in tandem with housing costs. Dougherty will be joined in conversation by Oregonian reporter Brad Schmidt.
