Smart Growth Book Discussion Club
We have restarted our Smart Growth Book Discussion Club!
Make friends, discuss civic activism, new urbanism, smart growth, making a difference, and anything on your mind about your neighborhood or regional growth. We will be discussing What To Do When It’s Your Turn (and It’s Always Your Turn) by Seth Godin (we have copies, so come even if you don’t have this book).
The chat will start at 2:00 pm at The Coffee House Without Limits in Allentown!
In future weeks, we will read Becoming Jane Jacobs by Peter Laurence, which you can order for $34.95 by calling Allentown’s Moravian Book Store at 610-351-0849.
