OPPI Province-wide On-line Book Club

Start/End Date: Sunday, April 25, 2021 12:00 AM - Sunday, July 4, 2021 12:00 AM
District: Lakeland District

Online

Thanks to everyone that participated in the survey for choosing the next book. Based on the survey results our next read will be Soft City: Building Density for Everyday Life by David Sim.

 

A "soft city" is a human-centered city — one that adapts to the needs of its residents and visitors to accommodate the pleasures of everyday life. "Soft City is an engaging and visually interesting book for those interested in creating a more human urban landscape. Sim provides a passionate and updated appeal for a messier, more complex, and more human urban experience."

 

This book is available in physical copy or e-reader formats. We will start this next book in the final week of April 2021. We hope that you will read along with us on our week-by-week schedule.  If you’ve already read this book, please feel free to join in the weekly discussions with us.

 

Based on the results from the last survey, this edition of the book club will be available on OPPI’s PlannersConnect  platform as well as on our previous home at Linked In. Join us in discussion on the platform of your choosing.

 

We also hope to run a wrap-up Zoom discussion at the end of the read.

 

We look forward to the coming read and some great discussions.
