Northern News has received a copy of Brave New Home by Diana Lind (Bold Type Books, 2020. Hardcover, 257 pages. ISBN 9781541742666). Lind is a writer and policy specialist who has worked at Architectural Record magazine, Next City (where she served as editor-in-chief and executive director), the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the University of Pennsylvania.
From the back cover: “Despite a different and more diverse America, our housing is stuck in the 1950s. In Brave New Home, Diana Lind shows why a country full of single-family houses is bad for us and for the planet. With stops in several cities and other changing communities, the book offers a diagnosis of the crisis and a reimagining of what is possible.”
We asked in this notice for volunteers who would like to receive this book and write a review for Northern News, first come, first serve. As of 10:00 am February 23, we have a reviewer: Krystle Heaney, AICP, of Arcata. Look for her review in an upcoming issue.
