The model city that urban planners aged 8-10 made for our Mouse City Valley project will be publicly exhibited at Evergreen Brick Works on Sunday, May 6, noon. To help us celebrate, Susan Hughes will launch WALKING IN THE CITY WITH JANE, her brand new picture book about iconic urbanist Jane Jacobs.
After Susan gives a reading, she’ll be interviewed on stage by kids who took part in Mouse City Valley. Alex Furneaux will conduct be a mini Jane’s Walk from the BMO Atrium to the Children’s Garden at Evergreen, where children will conduct tours of their model city.
Don’t miss this opportunity to not only pick up this exquisite new biography of Jane Jacobs for young readers, but, to celebrate how her vision of ‘a healthy city’ continues to inspire young city-builders.
Architect Naama Blonder will also join us and run UrbanBlocks, her celebrated giant board game for city builders of all ages (pictured above).
Evergreen Garden Market will have books available for purchase at the event.
