Book Talk: The Connected Community

with Cormac Russell and John McKnight

We may be living longer, but people are more socially isolated than ever before. As a result, we are hindered both mentally and physically, and many of us are looking for something concrete we can do to address problems like poverty, racism, and climate change. What if solutions could be found on your very doorstep or just two door knocks away?

Cormac Russell is a veteran practitioner of asset-based community development (ABCD), which focuses on uncovering and leveraging the hidden resources, skills, and experience in our neighborhoods. He and John McKnight, the Co-Founder of the ABCD Institute, show how anyone can discover this untapped potential and connect with his or her neighbors to create healthier, safer, greener, more prosperous, and welcoming communities.

Join John and Cormac in person for discussion, wine, and appetizers.

Telling the stories of what community builders have done so that we can join in the process.

Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods

We are discovering that it takes a village to do more than raise a child. It is the key to a satisfying life. It turns out we need our neighbors and a community to be healthy, produce jobs, protect the land and care for the elderly and those on the margin.
