51hoqforppl_sl500_aa240_.jpgI will be videotaping this talk put on by the Center for Urban Pedagogy, where I had my collaborative residency last spring.  It should be quite great.  Miriam Greenberg is also coincidentally my neighbor and I have heard only amazing things about her book.  It should be especially interesting for artists, urban planners and people living in gentrifying neighborhoods.  Be sure to RSVP & bring an ID.
