Building Healthy Places Book Club: The Address Book
ULI’s Building Healthy Places Book Club is designed to spark thought and conversation around health, social equity, and real estate.
Our next title is The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power. Author Deirdre Mask takes readers on a global journey through the complex and often hidden stories behind street names and their power to name, to hide, and to decide who counts and who doesn’t—and why. Participation is free and requires registration. All registered participants will receive the suggested reading schedule, along with an invitation to attend all virtual meetups:
