On Sunday, June 1st at 4 PM, Carmichael's Bookstore and The Coalition for the Advancement of Regional Transportation (CART) welcome author, activist, and scholar Benjamin Ross for a discussion of his new book Dead End : Suburban Sprawl and the Rebirth of American Urbanism. Dead End traces how the ideal of a safe, green, orderly retreat where hardworking members of the middle class could raise their children away from the city mutated into the McMansion and strip mall-ridden suburbs of today. Ross finds that sprawl is much more than bad architecture and sloppy planning. Its roots are historical, sociological, and economic. He uses these insights to lay out a practical strategy for change, honed by his experience leading the largest grass-roots mass transit advocacy organization in the United States. We hope you'll be able to join us for this very important discussion. A book signing will follow.
