American Book 409926 Little Pink House

Suzette Kelo was just trying to rebuild her life when she purchased a falling down Victorian house perched on the waterfront in New London CT. The house wasn't particularly fancy but with lots of hard work Suzette was able to turn it into a home that was important to her a home that represented her new found independence. Little did she know that the City of New London desperate to revive its flailing economy wanted to raze her house and the others like it that sat along the waterfront in order to win a lucrative Pfizer pharmaceutical contract that would bring new business into the city. Kelo and fourteen neighbors flat out refused to sell so the city decided to exercise its power of eminent domain to condemn their homes launching one of the most extraordinary legal cases of our time a case that ultimately reached the United States Supreme Court. In Little Pink House award-winning investigative journalist Jeff Benedict takes us behind the scenes of this case -- indeed Suzette Kelo speaks for the first time about all the details of this inspirational true story as one woman led the charge to take on corporate America to save her home. Publisher: Warner Books. Author: Benedict Jeff. Pages: 416. Dimensions: 6.2 x 9.3 x 1.3. Language: English.
