Small, 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
