Event description

Description

The relationship between an individual and their community has preoccupied Eric Klinenberg for over a decade. In his latest study, Palaces for the People: How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life, he argues that the future of democratic societies rests not simply on shared values, but also on the shared spaces of libraries, childcare centers, bookstores, churches, synagogues, and parks, where essential, and sometimes life-saving, connections are made.
