Luke Shaefer is the co-author of the book "$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America" that won the 2016 Hillman Prize for Book Journalism. It is an insightful read that looks into the American families living on $2.00 per person, per day, asking the questions - 

  • Where do these families live?
  • How did they get so desperately poor?
  • What do they do to survive?

Do consider reading the book or some of its excerpts for a more engaging and enriching discussion.
