Can more exposure to nature consistently improve your mood? Can even a glimspe of a tree, park, or river better your health? Should you put yourself on a nature “diet”? In The Nature Fix, Florence Williams’ reporting prompts these questions and more. Throughout she pushes researchers to explain humankind’s connection to the natural world, and explores the myriad implications for urban living.

Van Alen Book Club
Van Alen Book Club meets the last Tuesday of every month (except December) in our street-level space. Our discussions, moderated by some of our favorite urbanists, use the urban experience in fiction and non-fiction as a springboard to ask how we experience cities, and how we want to make them in the future. Meetings are open to all, and include pizza, wine, and beer.
