Jane Jacobs: A Biography for Young People

I'm thrilled to announce that Seven Stories Press has acquired my forthcoming Young Adult biography on the life of Jane Jacobs, the visionary urbanist and thinker who transformed the way we inhabit and develop our cities. Jane's story will join the Young People's Series published by Seven Stories Press for their Triangle Square Books for Young Readers imprint, with distribution by Penguin Random House. It is an honor to share her story with young readers. Find out more about the book right here...
