Happy Hour with Car Country author Christopher Wells

Who: Christopher Wells, author of Car Country and environmental studies professor at Macalester College

Where: Tiger Sushi 2, 2841 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55408

When: 5:30 pm on Wednesday, July 31st (program at 6:00 pm)

On July 31st, come listen to Christopher Wells read from his book, Car Country: An Environmental History, and ask him some questions. Professor Wells tackles the question, "Why do Americans drive so much?" by looking at our built environment. More than a century of government intervention has led to the construction of car-dependent landscapes, which make walking and cycling unsafe and inconvenient. We'll mingle and get drinks at 5:30 and Wells will give a short presentation at 6:00, after which he'll take questions from the audience.

You can hear Bill Lindeke interview Professor Wells on the Streets.mn podcast. You can also buy Car Country at a local bookstore or online.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP on Facebook!
