In 2009 Drew Philp purchased an abandoned house in Detroit for $500. In his book, A $500 House in Detroit: Rebuilding an Abandoned Home and an American City, Philp explores the racial, economic and social complexities of the city while finding his place in the changing landscape. Philp will be showing photos of the house and neighborhood and answering questions in this hour-long talk. Program sponsored by the Friends of Berkley Public Library.
