Book On It

“Where is your bookmark?”

My bookmark is in the social science book “Palaces For The People” by Eric Klinenberg. I listened to Klinenberg on the “Why Is This Happening?” podcast hosted by Chris Hayes. I was intrigued by the idea of improving social infrastructure for fighting social injustices. The first part of the book talks about humidity in Chicago during July 1995 and the aftermath based on class, gender and ethnicity with fascinating insight. The writing is sharp, well-paced and in place while educational to carry out the thesis of the book.
