There's No Place Like Home: The Art and Science of Loving Where You Live
When was the last time you changed your address? Well, if you're like most Americans, it probably wasn't that long ago. According to the Census Bureau, the average U.S. resident will move 11.7 times in his or her lifetime. This hour, we take a closer look at why we're on the move so much. What does it take to truly feel at home where you live? It's something journalist Melody Warnick writes about in her new book called This Is Where You Belong.
Later, we also consider Connecticut’s place in New England with writer Richard Conniff.
