Cabrini-Green, Lincoln Park’s public-housing neighbor; a discussion with Ben Austen, author of High-Risers

The Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative presents their fall program virtually. 

Please join authors, Ben Austen and Audrey Petty, as they discuss High-Risers: Cabrini-Green and the Fate of American Public Housing, Ben Austen’s book, which is a sweeping exploration of race, class, popular culture, and politics in modern America that brilliantly considers what went wrong in our nation's effort to provide affordable housing to the poor—and what we can learn from those mistakes. This event is free and open to the public.
