Instruction & Training 1312
Join a student-led book club to discuss this year’s UCSB Reads book selection, Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design by Charles Montgomery, which explores how our communities do or do not make us happy. 
Snacks and drinks will be provided!  Sign up here!
Come to this first meeting to meet the book club leaders and other participants! You'll be able to pick up a free copy of the UCSB Reads book and a t-shirt, and help determine the dates of future spring quarter meetings. You do not have to have read the book to join us.
The book club will meet two additional times to discuss themes of urban design and the new science of happiness, car dependency and other transportation issues, dense urban living, and the importance of creating happy, green, and low-carbon cities for everyone. We are excited to hear everyone’s unique reflections and ideas for how to improve our own communities!
Club is open to any UCSB affiliate, students, staff and faculty are welcome!
UCSB Reads is an annual “one book” common reading program led by UCSB Library.
