Join author John Strazzabosco on Thursday, July 15 at 7pm for a virtual presentation and Q&A about his book 90 Feet Under: What Poverty Does to PeopleAccording to Strazzabosco, "The book was written in an effort to find answers that plagued me as to why poverty has remained so resilient. By writing a list I began to understand that the problem has so many roots in disparate places that defy understanding, until I accepted the enormity of the whole assault on the mind and body. The causes I've identified are neurological, physiological, linguistic, and crammed with fear, cold and hunger."
