Monthly Book Club Meeting.

The New York Times-bestselling Freakonomics changed the way we see the world, exposing the hidden side of just about everything. Then came SuperFreakonomics, a documentary film, an award-winning podcast, and more.

Now, with Think Like a Freak, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner have written their most revolutionary book yet. With their trademark blend of captivating storytelling and unconventional analysis, they take us inside their thought process and teach us all to think a bit more productively, more creatively, more rationally--to think, that is, like a Freak.

Please join us at Applebees at 3pm for a lively discussion.

We meet the 4th Monday of each month (except holidays) in the back room of Applebee's restaurant in Southshore. We read non-fiction books, preferably paperbacks, chosen by the group upon the recommendation of one of us who has read the book. Discussion is lively, interesting, and challenging.

Anyone thinking of becoming a member and who has read the book is invited to attend.

Contact Felice Zensius for more information.

To recommend a book, please refer to the Book Club Recommendation guidelines.

Alameda in the Making: The ongoing story of development in Alameda.

This community forum offers presentations about developments that are coming to Alameda or are currently underway and the impact these developments will have on the City's housing shortage. Come to hear project updates and future development plans. Be prepared to ask questions and offer feedback to those developers & organizations sharing their housing information.

This is one of several ongoing forums about community development information and related Alameda issues. It is an excellent opportunity for the public to learn and participate in a discussion about these new Alameda developments with those individuals involved in making these proposals a reality. Currently, there are both residential & commercial projects coming to Alameda
