This year, Author Matthew Desmond will be visiting Northeastern University on Tuesday September 4, 2018 to speak to the incoming class. This is a mandatory event for all new students. More information will be available on the Welcome Week website and in the materials distributed during Move-In.

Since all incoming students will have read Matthew Desmond’s Evicted, the Department of English’s course College Writing (ENGL 1111) and other classes may use the First Pages book as a common discussion point throughout the first year.

How to get the book

The University Bookstore sells the book. It will be available at a 20% discount beginning June 15, 2018. Most major retailers also carry the book.
