“I've always believed that happiness is just around the corner. The trick is finding the right corner.”
― Eric Weiner, The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for the Happiest Places in the World

So, as you may have read on the alt+library blog or on the message board, our book club this month is going to incorporate a midtown ramble. We are accepting submissions for locations to visit on the route until May 5th; start point will be posted on May 7th. For more details on the why and the how, check here. Enjoy the book!

    Oh I'm so bummed that I missed out on the evening activities. Any highlights you can post, to ease my curiosity ?

    It was very interesting. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I did enjoy the social interaction and the various " happy" spots.

    Thanks to all who participated last night! I had a great time walking and talking with you folks. I think we'll try to do another one of these again this autumn.

    I had a great time chatting with other book club members and learning about their favorite places. I would definitely attend this type of event again.

    Also - the walk just under 4 miles round trip. So wear comfortable shoes. We will be returning to nearish our start point.

    It's HERE! Our starting point will be R15 - on the corner of R and 15th. Bonus points to anyone who knows WHY that was selected as our point of origin . . .

    Okay, alt+library patrons, the parameters have narrowed, based on the responses. If you would like to submit a spot, please be sure it is between J and S, between 12th and 26th. We have 8 sites already - beginning location coming soon!
