Event description
Sarasota County Libraries staff and The Library Foundation for Sarasota County welcome Professor Eric Klinenberg to discuss his New York Times Bestseller Palaces For the People; How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life.
Klinenberg, a sociologist, explores how community spaces such as libraries, parks, schools and other gathering places contribute to a citizen’s sense of belonging and make the difference between just surviving and thriving.  Dr. Klinenberg will talk about the importance of public spaces where people can gather and linger, and the formation of bonds across traditional boundaries that grow from these interactions, providing life-saving connections between us all.
Q & A will follow the presentation, and books will be available for sale.
