Jeff Speck, a city planner and former director of design at the National Endowment for the Arts, talks about his book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time, in which he argues that urban centers should be designed to better suit pedestrians than automobiles. The author focuses on small to mid-sized cities, such as Providence, Rhode Island, which according to the author, if redesigned to be more walkable, would improve the standard of living. Jeff Speck spoke at Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon. close

    C-SPAN.org offers links to books featured on the C-SPAN networks to make it simpler for viewers to purchase them. C-SPAN has agreements with retailers that share a small percentage of your purchase price with our network. For example, as an Amazon Associate, C-SPAN earns money from your qualifying purchases. However, C-SPAN only receives this revenue if your book purchase is made using the links on this page.

    Any revenue realized from this program goes into a general account to help fund C-SPAN operations.

    Please note that questions regarding fulfillment, customer service, privacy policies, or issues relating to your book orders should be directed to the Webmaster or administrator of the specific bookseller's site and are their sole responsibility.
