Event Details

Please join us for a book signing with Glenna Lang in celebration of Jane Jacobs’s 105th birth date.

Glenna will be signing copies of her new book: Jane Jacobs’s First City: Learning from Scranton.

Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was an urbanist and activist whose writings gave a fresh, community-based approach to city building. Jacobs was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania until she moved to New York in 1935. The impact of Jane Jacobs’s observation, activism, and writing has led to a ‘planning blueprint’ for generations of architects, planners, politicians and activists to practice.

Through interviews, newspaper clippings, and research, Lang uncovers Scranton as young Jane experienced it and shows the lasting impact of her growing up in this thriving and accessible environment.
