Thursday at Magers & Quinn: Discuss the future of the Twin Cities—neighborhoods, job growth—with local community leaders

This Thursday, Minneapolis bookseller Magers & Quinn will be hosting an open forum led by author and community leader Myron Orfield. Orfield will be joined by Meg Tuthill, the new council member for Ward 10; Dave VanHattum of the nonprofit organization Transit for Livable Communities; and Jesse Mortenson of the nonprofit MetroIBA, which supports independent businesses in the Twin Cities. Panelists will discuss how we can create thriving neighborhoods and promote job growth in the Twin Cities region.

This event begins at 7:30 p.m. this Thursday and is free and open to the public. Find more information here.

Orfield is the author of Region: Planning the Future of the Twin Cities, which discusses the Twin Cities' potential to become a model to other regions around the U.S. for responsible urban and suburban planning.
