Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival, and Hope in an American City (An Evening with Andrea Elliott)
We are pleased to be able to join with a consortium of Illinois libraries as they present an evening Andrea Elliott, author of Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival & Hope in an American City. Ms. Elliott is first woman to win an individual Pulitzer in both Arts & Letters and Journalism. Her nonfiction book chronicles eight dramatic years in the life of a young girl named Dasani and her family as they move from shelter to shelter in New York. By turns heartbreaking and inspiring, Invisible Child is a story about the power of resilience, the importance of family, and the cost of inequality—told through the crucible of one remarkable girl. This online program will be a Zoom webinar and is free and open to the public.
“A vivid and devastating story of American inequality.” —The New York Times
