Jane Jacobs


After releasing Systems Of Survival, her fifth book, urban neighbourhoods champion Jane Jacobs was slated to keynote the annual PEN benefit.

In her conversation with then NOW city affairs columnist and former mayor John Sewell, she talked about trusting her powers of observation more than any theory and favouring the doers over the administrators. See the issue here.

Toronto continues to honour Jacobs with Jane’s Walk, a series of walking tours inaugurated in 2007 and still going strong.
