In the spirit of Gretchen Rubin’s megaseller The Happiness Project and Eric Weiner’s The Geography of Bliss, a journalist embarks on a project to discover what it takes to love where you live.
Author Melody Warnick’s journey to find out what makes us love our towns and cities, and why it matters, is at the heart of This Is Where You Belong. In a letter to librarians, she explains how libraries are the most reliable indicator of how well we’ll like a place and that a town with an excellent library is almost always an excellent place to live. “Having spent the past few years writing This Is Where You Belong . . . I’m ready to state that anyone who’d like to feel happier in their hometown would do well to look toward the library.” Read the rest of Warnick’s letter below.
