Jeff Speck

Jeff Speck, international expert and advocate for more walkable, sustainable cities, will deliver a public lecture at 6:30 PM. In his latest book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time, Speck writes, “. . . we must understand that the walkable city is not just a nice, idealistic notion. Rather, it is a simple, practical-minded solution to a host of complex problems that we face as a society, problems that daily undermine our nation’s economic competitiveness, public welfare, and environmental sustainability.”

Mr. Speck will be available after the event to sign his book. Prairie Lights will sell copies at the event and will also have them in stock at their book shop located at 15 S. Dubuque St., Iowa City.

The City of Iowa City and the University of Iowa School of Urban Planning are partnering to bring Speck to the Iowa City community.
