Catherine Tumber: Small, Gritty and Green *at Longfellow Books*

Small Gritty and GreenSmall, Gritty and Green: The Promise of America's Smaller Industrial Cities in a Low-Carbon World by Catherine Tumber
Thursday, April 26th, 7:00pm at Longfellow Books
 
Journalist and historian, Catherine Tumber, who has spent much of her life in Rust Belt cities, traveled to twenty-five cities in the Northeast and Midwest--from Buffalo to Peoria to Detroit to Rochester--interviewing planners, city officials, and activists, and weaving their stories into this exploration of small-scale urbanism.
 
"Small, Gritty, and Green is indeed an eye-opener, and it’s exciting, after reading so many recent books about the virtues of great cities, to learn about the creative, environmentally sustainable development projects happening in less celebrated towns...[H]er argument is provocative and serious, and everyone searching for a more sustainable urban future should consider it." -Eric Klinenberg, Bookforum
