You are reading Streets.MN, you might have something to do with Minnesota, Transport, and Land Use, and you are probably literate. Here are some books you should read.
- Lost Twin Cities – Larry Millett
- Twin Cities by Trolley by John Diers and Aaron Isaacs
- Main Street by Sinclair Lewis
- Minnesota in the 70s by Dave Kenney and Thomas Saylor
- Potluck Supper with Meeting to Follow: Essays by Andy Sturdevant
What else you got? Add more to the comments:
Honorable Mention: Mary Losure’s Our Way or the Highway: Inside the Minnehaha Free State?
I’ve been thinking about this lately…we need to set up a MN/urban/transport/land use book exchange. Many of the titles are available in libraries, but I’m sure there are several that are not.
I recently bought Myron Orfield’s Region: Planning the Future of the Twin Cities, which is more academic than a leisurely read. The maps are pretty great though.
I also just grabbed Twin Cities Noir
All of the Larry Millett books are on my Xmas list, along with Charles Mongomery’s Happy City
Of course every Streets.MN reader should own their own copy of Jeff Speck’s Walkable City and read it before bed every night.
I wonder if there’s a wordpress plugin or some other platform we could use to get that going. I’m happy to lend out from my collection.
Why indeed there is…
