Coach House Books and Spacing Store present a talk about how public toilets fail our private needs.
Public toilets are crappy – this is something we can all agree on – but have you ever really considered why?
Journalist Lezlie Lowe took the plunge into the swirling world of public potties in her book No Place To Go. A toilet tour from London to Portland to Toronto and beyond, No Place To Go highlights pay potties, deserted alleyways, and even a mobile hygiene unit built on a refurbished city bus that serves San Francisco’s homeless population, all the while questioning why the business of doing our business is still such a taboo topic.
Lezlie will read and take part in a panel discussion with special guests TBD. Free and all are welcome.
