Book Club Pot Luck: How to Kill a City

July 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A potluck open discussion of How to Kill a City and gentrification nationally and in Santa Fe. Please bring either a salad or main dish to share. We don’t need chips and dip. Let’s be healthy. While there will be waters available, if you want something else to drink, please bring that. This is a compelling book that is not without criticism. What I found compelling about it was that rather rely solely on data and statistics, the author focused on the human face of gentrification, the people in four cities: Detroit, New Orleans, New York and San Francisco who contributed to and fostered the gentrification and who suffered from it. Over the next month, i will assemble a few articles as supplementary reading, but How to Kill a City is a very readable piece. I highly recommend calling Collective Works (505) 988-4226) to buy it there. Amazon doesn’t need your business, our local bookseller does. I will be calling Collected Works this morning to alert them and to order a supply.
