Join authors Bruce Katz and Jeremy Nowak for a conversation about those who hold the real power in cities today—the problem-solvers.

 

The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive In The Age of Populism by Katz, Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, and Citizen Chairman Nowak provides a roadmap for change that starts in the communities where most people live and work.

At a book signing and reception, Katz and Nowak will take an engaging and informative dive into how we can address our most serious social, economic and environmental challenges amidst the populist movements of both the right and the left.

The event, hosted by Spring Point Partners, is free. It includes a book signing and cocktail reception.
