Also being released is Véhicule PressThe Walkable City: From Haussmann’s Boulevards to Jane Jacobs’ Streets and Beyond, a new urban studies book by Mary Soderstrom. Both See and Soderstrom will give presentations about their new books, followed by a Q&A with Spacing publisher Matt Blackett, who is hosting the event.
