Buy Local Book Club is tomorrow!

(...and we need a more fitting name.  We'll discuss this at our meeting tomorrow!)

When:  Thursday, March 18th from 6 PM - 9 PMish

Where: UPSTAIRS at The Globe(199 N. Lumpkin St., 30601 - downtown Athens, GA)

Why:  To discuss Athens and ways to nurture it; to talk about localism, sustainability, "place-making," and community enrichment.

The BookThe Great Neighborhood Book by Jay Walljasper

Walljasper's book focuses heavily on the concept of place-making as envisioned by the Project for Public Spaces.  If you haven't acquired a copy of the book, no worries--your comments and insights will still be quite valuable!  For a crash course in place-making, check out PPS's website.

At the meeting, we'll select what our next book club choice will be--the next meeting will be in about three months, as the club aims to meet quarterly.

Thanks for your time, and I really hope to see you there tomorrow evening.  Email me with any questions, and contact The Globe at (706) 353-4721 if you need specific directions.
