Citizen Jane

I’m delighted to be speaking on a panel next week at TIFF about the legacy of Jane Jacobs. The panel, with Zahra Ebrahim and Hibag Gelle, will follow a screening of Citizen Jane: Battle for the City. Citizen Jane is about the feud between Jacobs and Robert Moses over the proposed development of the Lower Manhattan Expressway in the 1960s.

The evening will begin with a Jane’s Walk to TIFF, led by urban planner Ken Greenberg and former Toronto mayor Barbara Hall. After the film, Zahra, Hibag, and I will speak about how Jacobs has influenced our life and work. I will be speaking specifically about my work as an editor, and my positions with The Reading Line and Charlie’s FreeWheels.
