This week we'll speak with Larry Bourgeois. Larry is the director of 1801 Mills and promotes the idea of Third Place, places such as coffeehouses and bookstores that are the heart of a community's intellectual life. His organization offers support and training to groups wanting to open coffee houses. (See Elizabeth Wu's interview with Bourgeois about Third Place in CityBeat's 2009 Swizzle Bar Guide.)
Third Place is also the theme of CityBeat's 2009 Annual Manual, our locals' guide to Cincinnati.
