JEFF SPECK at Town Hall Seattle

Co-presented with the TOWN HALL CENTER FOR CIVIC LIFE. A working city planner, coauthor of Suburban Nation, and former director of design at the National Endowment for the Arts, Jeff Speck is here with a very timely, appropriate book for here and now, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time (Farrar, Straus & Giroux). "Cities are the future of the human race, and Jeff Speck knows how to make them work. In Walkable City, he persuasively explains how to create rational urban spaces and improve the quality of life by containing the number one vector of global environmental catastrophe: the automobile." - David Owen. $5 tickets are available at the door starting at 6:30 p.m., or in advance via Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
