James Kuntsler, author and specialist on urban sprawl, will speak on the topic "Parking Lot Nation" at Samford University Wednesday, April 11, at 2:15 p.m. in Brock Forum, Dwight Beeson Hall. The public is invited free of charge.

Kuntsler is the author of the best-selling books The Geography of Nowhere and Home from Nowhere. The former book deals with issues related to the highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities and ravaged countryside that make up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work.

"A land full of places that are not worth caring about will soon be a nation and a way of life that is not worth defending," Kuntsler has said.
