Join us for this special evening edition of In Deep with Angie Coiro as veteran journalist Coiro tackles gentrification with Paul Madonna and Peter Moskowitz.

The irony can't be missed when an artist acclaimed for his loving depictions of San Francisco gets evicted from his home in the town that made his name. That's what happened to Paul Madonna, creator of the San Francisco Chronicle's All Over Coffee. Meanwhile, across the country, journalist Peter Moskowitz was unearthing the political and market machinations accelerating the gentrification of New York, New Orleans, Detroit, and San Francisco. Beyond describing the epidemic that's uprooting families and small businesses, Moskowitz details how to put a stop to it.

Paul Madonna is a San Francisco-based artist and writer, and the author of the books All Over Coffee and Everything is its own reward. His drawings and stories have appeared in numerous books and journals as well as galleries and museums, including the San Francisco Contemporary Jewish Museum and the Oakland Museum of California.

Peter Moskowitz is a freelance journalist. He's written for the Guardian, New York Times, New Republic, Wired, Slate, Buzzfeed, and many others. A former staff writer at Al Jazeera America, he is a graduate of Hampshire College and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. Moskowitz lives in New York City.
