Ben Ross' new book, “Dead End: Suburban Sprawl and the Rebirth of American Urbanism,” is drawing praise for its well-researched analysis of why so many Americans live in widely dispersed, single-family homes and spend so many hours stuck in traffic. Join us for a provocative discussion about the roots of suburban American and how disenchantment of that "dream" is now fueling a new American Urbanism.

As always, a yummy light lunch will be served. I hope to see you there!
