Your "Great Books, Great Minds" Weekly Wrap-Up
Week of September 12, 2022
Let’s just say that its been another “Great Week” filled with more “Great Books.” Here’s an update on what’s happening of late
A Trek to Tattered Cover Bookstore — Again!
Yesterday I made my monthly pilgrimage to Denver’s infamous Tattered Cover Bookstore on Colfax Avenue which never disappoints. Armed with $32.12 of store credit from having sold some used books, I purchased a “can’t wait to-read” biography of 20th Century civil rights icon Constance Baker Motley. At 360 pages, it may take me a while to get through this one. So stay tuned for my review on “Black Books, Black Minds,” a sister publication of “Great Books, Great Minds.”
NEW! — Great Books, Great Cities
Anyone who has known me for a while knows that I love cities…..
Back in my early days as an independent journalist, I had a blog called “Urban Engagement Webcity” where I pop into a city and write about emerging trends around cities, economic development, urban sociology, and the changing built environment. In addition, articles of mine were featured in GovTech Magazine, New Geography dot com, and AaronRenn.com among many others.
Here’s a picture of me in a downtown Denver alleyway in 2011, back in my glory days.
Because of my insatiable longing for cities, I have decided to launch a new site called “Great Books, Great Cities” which will offer a unique perspective on cities and towns from a host of authors covering themes in this genre. Housing, Transportation, Energy, Arts Communities, and Pedestrianism are among the endless topics we’ll cover. So be sure to sign up now for our August 1st launch issue
Can’t Wait to Meet Nate
Nate Rifkin that is, the author of the book “Standing Meditation: Excel In The Modern World” using an Ancient Practice.” I am sooo resonating with his book. And on top of it, he is also a fan of Taoist wisdom and life practices. We are meeting on September 28th so I’ll update you on our chat.
Also, we are hosting our first live Twitter Spaces event next Wednesday, September 21st at 8:30 ET. Yours truly will be interviewing Laurie Kretchmar, author of the book “Tweet This: How to Amplify Your Brand On Twitter” who I featured in a “Great Books, Great Minds” feature article a few months ago.
