Celebrating the Third Place: Inspiring Stories about the "Great Good Places" at the Heart of Our Communities Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nationwide, more and more entrepreneurs are committing themselves to creating and running "third places," also known as "great good places." In his landmark work, The Great Good Place, Ray Oldenburg identified, portrayed, and promoted those third places. Now, more than ten years after the original publication of that book, the time has come to celebrate the many third places that dot the American landscape and foster civic life. With 20 black-and-white photographs, Celebrating the Third Place brings together fifteen firsthand accounts by proprietors of third places, as well as appreciations by fans who have made spending time at these hangouts a regular part of their lives. Among the establishments profiled are a shopping center in Seattle, a three-hundred-year-old tavern in Washington, D.C., a garden shop in Amherst, Massachusetts, a coffeehouse in Raleigh, North Carolina, a bookstore in Traverse City, Michigan, and a restaurant in San Francisco.

Synopsis:

From taverns to garden shops to town libraries to spas, this volume offers inspiring stories about the "great good places" at the heart of our communities. Oldenburg's "The Great Good Place" has helped to spawn the revival of local hangouts, and now this book provides firsthand stories about those leading the revival. 20 photos.
