Eric Liu

Eric Liu is the co-founder and CEO of Citizen University, which works to build a culture of powerful and responsible citizenship in the United States (read more below). Liu also directs the Aspen Institute’s Citizenship and American Identity Program.
Liu’s most recent book, Become America: Civic Sermons on Love, Responsibility, and Democracy — was a New York Times New and Notable Book. He has also authored several other acclaimed books, including The Accidental Asian: Notes of a Native Speaker; The Gardens of Democracy (co-authored with Nick Hanauer); and You’re More Powerful Than You Think: A Citizen’s Guide to Making Change Happen.
He has been selected as an Ashoka Fellow and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is featured on the PBS documentary American Creed and is a frequent contributor to The Atlantic

Among Citizen University’s many impactful initiatives is the creation of nonpartisan Civic Saturdays, a nationwide movement to inspire a renewed sense of shared civic purpose and moral courage in community. Third Place Commons began proudly hosting these nonpartisan events in 2021, led by local Civic Saturday fellows Erika Olson and Caroline Sayre. The next gathering takes place on Saturday, February 26th via Zoom and you’re invited! Register here for Civic Saturday.
In addition to Civic Saturday, Third Place Commons hosts countless free events to foster and enrich community every year including live music every Friday and Saturday night, book and movie clubs, foreign language groups, and the LFP Farmers Market from May to October. All of which is possible with your support.
So don’t miss your chance to connect with community, have some fun, hear from a great speaker, and help raise vital funds for Third Place Commons and the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market. 

Third Place Commons – a community supported 501(c)3 nonprofit organization – has been building real community in the heart of Lake Forest Park for over 20 years.
