Book Discussion on Amanda Elliot’s Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival & Hope in an American City

Please join us, Tuesday, November 29th from 12:00 to 1:00 for a remote discussion of Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival & Hope by Amanda Elliot.

Register to join the discussion.  A limited number of free copies will soon be available. You can request them on the registration form. First come, first served.

This Pulitzer Prize-winning book was also named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times, The Atlantic, The New York Times Book Review, TimeNPR, and Library Journal.

In 2013, the front page of The New York Times devoted five straight days to the story of Dasani, an 11-year-old Black girl who lived in a homeless shelter in Brooklyn. Andrea Elliott, the reporter of that series, then published Invisible Child which tells the full story of Dasani and her family up to the present day.

This discussion will be led by Liz Petty, MD, and Vera Tsenkova, PhD. It is open to all students, staff, and faculty of the UW health sciences schools. The discussion group is limited to 20 participants. You do not need to complete the reading of the book to participate!
