BUY LOCAL BOOK CLUB MEETINGWhen: 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 Book: The Great Neighborhood Book by Jay Walljasper
(As of 3/17, our local library branch has one copy in!)
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.
