Nonfiction Book Discussion @ online via Zoom
**Cancelled due to illness**
The next meeting of Thetford’s informal nonfiction book discussion group will take place at Latham Library on Thetford Hill on Tuesday March 28th at 12 NOON on Zoom.   For the Zoom link, please contact librarian@thetfordlibrary.org
We will continue our discussion of The City in History by Lewis Mumford.
 A definitive classic, Lewis Mumford’s massive historical study brings together a wide array of evidence — from the earliest group habitats to medieval towns to the modern centers of commerce — to show how the urban form has changed throughout human civilization.

Mumford explores the factors that made Greek cities uniques and offers a controversial view of the Roman city concept. He explains how the role of monasticism influenced Christian towns and how mercanitile capitalism shapes the modern city today.

The City in History remains a powerfully influential work, one that has shaped the agendas of urban planners, sociologists, and social critics since its publication in the 1960s.
