$144 a month : life in the safety net by Steve Bogira( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This powerful and poignant book, written in 1983, and first published in the Chicago Reader, is the story of people living, or trying to live, on General Assistance, a now-discontinued Illinois program that was the last resort of those who did not qualify for other 'more genreous' forms of welfare. Each person developed a personal strategy to circumvent the system and get by on the state allotment of $144 a month. Many turned to Marillac House, a settlement house on the West Side of Chicago, for emergency food and clothing. Author Bogira does a remarkable job of getting his subjects to tell their own stories. The book also contains four portraits by hotographer Mike Tappin. The pictures reinforce the sense of dignity felt in the subject's words. Selected as one of 48 books exhibited in 'Dressing the Text' at the Art Museum of Santa Cruz County. Also selected as one of 44 books exhibited in the book design section of Felice Feliciano in Verona, Italy"--Provided by bookseller, Kelmscott Bookshop
