Book Party and Discussion

Please join us for a discussion and book party for The City is the Factory:New Solidarities and Spatial Strategies in an Urban Age, on November 3, 6 to 8 pm at the Murphy Institute.

The book is co-edited by Miriam Greenberg and Penny Lewis. Contributors will be joined by local organizers to discuss today’s urban-based struggles for change. What are the new kinds of organizing that we’re seeing emerging in cities today? What challenges do they face, what potential do they have?
