Congrats to Amanda Leahy and Sarah Vela - November's Book Club contest winners!

With every month's Book Club selection, TransportiCA provides three questions based-upon the reading.  If you send us all three correct responses by the end of the month, and your name is drawn, you will win a copy of the book, personally signed by the author(s).

For the November Book Club selection, TransportiCA has chosen Low Car(bon) Communities: Inspiring car-free and car-lite urban futures, by authors Nicole Foletta and Jason Henderson, Ph.D.
