Issue 2: What Place Do You Call Home?

Melody WarnickLove Where You Live experiment, Reading and writing

There’s this weird phenomenon that always happens when I tell people I wrote a book about place attachment. They desperately want to tell me their place history. Where they grew up. Where they used to live. Where they live now. Where they wished they live. Absolutely everyone on earth has a story to share about place—and from what I’ve seen, we’re eager to talk about it.

In other words, I’ve realized that This Is Where You Belong: The Art and Science of Loving the Place You Live was made for book clubs.

So I’ve created a downloadable list of book club questions that you can access at my website. For extra incentive to put this on your reading group calendar this year, I would love to Skype with your group when you talk about it. Just email me your meeting date and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
