Description

New York Times bestselling author Eric Klinenberg discusses his vital, illuminating book, “Palaces for the People: How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life.”

This provocative book reframes our conception of civic life, arguing that the resilience of our communities rests not on shared values but on shared spaces capable of fostering crucial, sometimes even life-saving connections. In clear, accessible prose, Klinenberg explains that today’s most pressing issues—crime, education, the opioid crisis and climate change—can all be addressed with place-based policies, and demonstrates how such policies have been put into effect with great success. 

Book signing follows the presentation.
