The much anticipated Kunstler event will occur in Tacoma's Theater on the Square on 4/23/2008. The urban event in recent time in Tacoma. Tickets are available at the Broadway Center.
Tickets are being bought up. There is now a significant slate of elected officials interested in city urbanism ideas that will be there.

The KunstlerCast is a weekly audio program about the tragic comedy of suburban sprawl.
Featuring: James Howard Kunstler, author of "The Geography of Nowhere", "The Long Emergency" and other books.
Duncan Crary, host/producer, speaks with Kunstler weekly about the failure of suburbia and the inevitable end of this living arrangement with no future.
I believe a lot of people share my feelings about the tragic landscape of highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities, and ravaged countryside that makes up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work.
- James Howard Kunstler,
from The Geography of Nowhere
