This year’s keynote will be delivered by Melody Warnick, author of “This is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are” published in 2016 by Viking/Penguin and recently released in paperback. Described by Richard Florida as “an important book for so many people who are choosing their place to live,” the book explores the science behind the groundbreaking concept of place attachment and leads long-time residents and newcomers alike to commit to a more passionate relationship with their community.
It has been featured in the New York Times, Time Magazine, Fast Company, Psychology Today, Realtor.com, Forbes.com, and Inc. magazine. ‘This is Where You Belong’ is a practical guide to improving, investing in, and coming to love the place where you live.
A freelance journalist for 15 years, Warnick lives with her family in Blacksburg, Virginia. You can find her online at melodywarnick.com.
