Monday 16 February 2009: Steven Greenhouse/Andrew McLeod/Charles Durrett
The 16 February program focused on the difficulties of our so-called economic system, especially for working people, and the possibilities of a more cooperative approach.

I first talked with New York Times labor and workplace correspondent Steven Greenhouse, whose book The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker has just come out in paperback from Anchor Books.

I then talked with Sacramento author Andrew McLeod about his recent book Holy Cooperation! Building Graceful Economies (Wipf and Stock/Cascade Books). He will appear at 10:30 AM on Saturday 21 February at Booktown Books and Tomes, 107 Bank Street in Grass Valley. Call 2165-2850 for more information.

I finally intended to talk with Nevada City architect and author Charles Durrett, but he was unable to make it. Durrett his wife Kathryn McCamant are largely responsibly for bringing the concept of Cohousing to the United State. The many cohousing communities their Cohousing Company has designed include recent ones in both Nevada City and Grass Valley. He will speak on Designing and Living a Green Life at 7 PM on Wednesday 18 February at the Nevada City Veterans Building, 415 North Pine Street in Nevada City. Call 218-2027 for more information.
