Here are some events I'll be attending and appearances I'm making. Hope to see you there if you're in town:
Thursday, April 19: Reading and signing of our new book How Green is Your City? at Barbara's bookstore at UIC (1218 S. Halsted), 7:30 p.m.
Friday afternoon: Wrigley Field. The Cubs. One of greenest teams in the US? Accessible by multi-modal public transit, walking, biking--drivers are discouraged by lack of official parking; the beating heart of the Wrigleyville neighborhood's economy; natural grass and vines, fresh air off the lake. What more can I say? Way to rally, Kurt!
Saturday, April 21: Green Fest opens at McCormick Place. I'll be moderating a panel at 2 p.m. (room e350) on "Chicago's Journey to Become the Greenest City in the Nation" with Sadhu Johnston, Chicago Environmental Commissioner; Jacky Grimshaw, VP of Policy, Transportation and Community Development at the Center for Neighborhood Technology; and Jim Slama, President of Sustain USA.
At 4 pm. in Room 1 at the Green Fest on Saturday other SustainLane folks including Haru Komuro and I will be presenting on "Markets are Conversation" about the convergence of the green market with the internet and applied social networking.
At 5 p.m. and also I think at 3, I will be doing book signings of How Green is Your City? at the New Society Publishers booth.
Funky Buddha Lounge for Green Fest party Saturday night, 728 W. Grand. Yee-hah!
Sunday: More Green Fest: stop by the SustainLane booth to meet our team.
Monday: Brown bag presentation about How Green is Your City? at University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy, noon-1:30 p.m., 1155 East 60th Street, Chicago
