Leland will lead a conversation about the book at Personally Speaking in the early spring of 2020. The date will be announced as quickly as it is confirmed. It will be at UNC Charlotte Center City (320 E. 9th St., Charlotte 28202). This marks the 10th season in which UNC Charlotte’ s College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, in partnership with J.

Her co-authors of American Cities are Eric Heberlig, also a political science professor at UNC Charlotte, and David Swindell, director of the Center for Urban Innovation and an associate professor in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University.
