The Strong Towns Book Club

Join the Strong Towns Book Club to discuss your favorite chapters from the Strong Towns book, Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity   

The Strong Towns staff—including author Charles L. Marohn, Jr.—will spend January 2020 prompting discussions and responding to questions about chapters one and two in the following section: https://community.strongtowns.org/topic/chapter-one-and-two. However, we also encourage you to start your own discussions, as well! 

You'll also find activities, such as Ask the Author, to give you a deeper look into chapters one or two. 

Want to ask a question or start a discussion about a different chapter other than one or two? Fantastic! Click the corresponding chapter in the Subtopics menu to share it and, while you're there, check out the referenced materials and activities scheduled for the coming months. 

Thanks for joining the Strong Towns Book Club!
