City Planner Book Club Meet Up: September 2017 Jersey City
Zeppelin Hall Biergarten, Jersey City, NJ
Event Type: Conference
Sponsoring Committees and Sections:
Our planning careers are pivoted on building communities, both physically and socially. But what about building literary communities?
The premise of the CPBC is simple. Books are announced in advance so you can choose which books you want to read and which meetups you want to attend. In the weeks leading up to each meetup, CPBC members are encouraged to post thoughts and observations about the book in an online forum to give us conversation starters for when we all meet up. Meetups are held in various locations throughout New Jersey and New York. Members come to as many meetups each year as they want.
Our current selection is We’re Still Here Ya Bastards: How the People of New Orleans Rebuilt Their City by Roberta Brandes Gratz.
