On Thursday April 16th, New Urbanist extraordinare, Andres Duany, will open his three day SmartCode workshop in Decatur with a free talk about Smart Growth principles from 5:30p-8p at Holy Trinity Parish (515 E. Ponce de Leon Ave).
A book signing will follow the event.
Duany never disappoints, so come see what’s sure to be an entertaining romp through the principles and benefits of smart growth.
And Daren Wang of the Decatur Book Festival predicts McVoy’s “Pure” is going to be big.
Over on Simon and Schuster’s website McVoy does a Q&A and answers the question “How did you come to write “Pure?”
A. I had been wanting to write a book about what it’s like trying to navigate all the trials and tribulations of ordinary high school drama, plus trying to stay true to one’s faith, when my editor made me aware of purity rings. Immediately I got a sense of PURE’s storyline, and was so excited that I started writing the first chapter immediately. The opening sentence is pretty much exact from the first draft!
Daren tells me The Little Shop book launch of “Pure” will be on April 17th. I think the pic above says “7:30pm”.
