Join our discussion of Palaces For The People by Eric Klinenberg. Throughout the book, Klinenberg, a sociologist and urban studies scholar, argues that supporting places where diverse groups of people can convene, converse, and connect is vital to forming strong communities. We will discuss Klinenberg’s many case studies (from Brooklyn libraries to Icelandic swimming pools) and share the places where we feel most connected to our neighbors and fellow citizens.
The discussion was moderated by Karen Kubey.
Open to new and returning participants.
Food and beverages will be provided.
