Urban Alchemy: Restoring Joy in America’s Sorted-Out Cities will arrive on bookshelves and in e-format on June 4. This illustrated work offers interventions for bringing new life to disenfranchised neighborhoods of American cities that have suffered intentional disinvestment related to race, age, and class. With exemplary urban revitalization projects from cities in France and the United States, the book presents nine key elements for community repair.

Author Mindy Thompson Fullilove, MD, is professor of clinical sociomedical sciences and clinical psychiatry at Columbia University. By combining psychology and urban studies, Dr. Fullilove strengthens the case for urban redevelopment without displacement.

What an exciting, momentous spring for New Village Press as we move our office from Oakland, California, to New York City!

New Village Press and its parent organization, ADPSR, will be among the first founding members of the newly opening Centre for Social Innovation, a coworking space in Chelsea for individuals and organizations with a social mission. We’re so grateful to make a new home in the magic of this emerging purposeful place!
