We’re counting down the days until the release of our president and founder Chuck Marohn’s first book, Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity. And one of the biggest reasons we’re so excited for publication day (October 1st!) is also one of the most simple: we really want to talk to you about what’s in its pages.

That’s why, today, we’re announcing something pretty cool: a digital book club where you can really dig in to the Strong Towns story, chapter-by-chapter. And don’t be surprised if the author himself pops in from time to time.

Pre-order your copy now, email us your receipt, and on October 1st, you’ll receive an invitation to join readers and Strong Citizens from around the world to talk about the Strong Towns book. We're still working on the details, but you can expect a staff-guided conversation, lively discussion with members and readers from all walks of life, and the motivation you need to keep reading and keep discovering how this message applies in your unique place. And, of course, if you need a non-judgmental place to go when you’re struggling to wrap your head around one of the more challenging concepts in the book, the group will be a great resource. Hey, we all had a little trouble grokking terms like “the spooky wisdom of the traditional development pattern” at first.

Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity is available for pre-order anywhere books are sold. Visit the Strong America page for more details.
