"Slow Is Beautiful" Makes 'Notable Titles' List
Elliott Bay Book Co.'s Karen Maeda Allman sent along wonderful news today: Slow Is Beautiful has made the American Booksellers Association's "Shop Local Notable Titles" list. The list honors "informative titles on the importance of building and strengthening a vibrant local economy" and includes Bill McKibben's Deep Economy and Robert Putnam's Better Together, as well as my friend David Korten's The Great Turning. Thank you ABA!
The full list is available from BookWeb here. Note other titles from New Society Publishers, who published my book:
The New Village Green: Living Light, Living Local, Living Large, by Stephen Morris.
The Better World Handbook: Small Changes that Make a Big Difference, by Ellis Jones.
Great Neighborhood Book: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Placemaking, by Jay Walljasper.
