Palaces for the People by Eric Klinenberg

As soon as I started reading this book, I wanted to send it to every community leader I know. Eric Klinenberg advocates for “social” infrastructure—physical spaces such as parks, libraries, pedestrian walkways, even bookstores and coffee shops—to create positive, practical change. Klinenberg presents tested evidence that these spaces not only create “community,” but also measurably reduce crime, fight poverty, improve education, combat climate change, help families, and increase life expectancy. Want to make a functional difference? Start here. - Jocelyn
