★ Finding Main Street toolkit available

Finding Main Street Facebook postBOOK CITY★Roanoke is pleased to support FINDING MAIN STREET, a statewide initiative that builds upon the success of last year’s FINDING ROANOKE book club.

This project of Virginia Main Street provides discussion guides, convening tips, marketing materials and a video series based on Dar Williams’ What I Found in a Thousand Towns (Basic Books, 2017).

If you enjoyed Roanoke’s conversations last fall on building positive proximity through local food, arts, history, partnerships, and created and natural spaces, encourage your friends to start discussions in their community.

The free toolkit includes a chapter-by chapter video series that can be used as short conversation starters for group discussions. Each video will highlight a Virginia community pursuing the strategies identified in the book. Videos will be released every Tuesday evening beginning September 4 at 6 PM. Catch every one: follow the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development on Facebook or subscribe via YouTube.

Learn more in this short overview presentation.  Finding Main Street project partners include Virginia Community Capital, Virginia Tourism Corporation, Virginia Center for the Book, and BOOK CITY★Roanoke.★
