by Melody Warnick
Available as a print book

Warnick dives into the body of research around place attachment—the deep sense of connection that binds (some) of us to the places we live-  and then travels across the country to see it in action.

Inspired by the growing movement of placemaking, “This is Where You Belong” explores what people are doing to create likeable locales, demonstrates what draws us to new places, and shows what makes us stay. The book is loaded with social science, advice, and humor, and Warnick’s crisp, conversational writing style makes it a fast, hard-to-put-down read.



by Brian K. Vaughn, Fiona Staples
