Invisible in Austin: Life and Labor in an American City – A Book Talk
Timely and essential reading, Invisible in Austin makes visible the growing gap between rich and poor that is reconfiguring the cityscape of one of America’s most dynamic places, as low-wage workers are forced to the social and symbolic margins.

The event will include readings and discussion with:
Javier Auyero, UT Sociology Professor and Editor
Pamela Neumann, UT Sociology PhD Candidate and Co-author
