Society of Architectural Historians book event

I had a book event, sponsored by the Society of Architectural Historians, at the Santa Monica Public Library. It was held on May 19, 2019. The architectural historians posted an article about my event on their website.

They also included an article about my book event in their newsletter.

The event was held at the Santa Monica Public Library. See the photo below.

The library created very nice handouts for the event.

The library even advertised my presentation in their elevator. How cool!

That’s me at the event.

There was a good turnout too. Maybe, 50 or 60 people.

I was very happy with how the event turned out. Thanks Santa Monica Public Library for hosting the event and thank you Society of Architectural Historians for letting me speak to your organization.

Skylight Books author event

I had an author event at Skylight Books for my book Architects Who Built Southern California on May 5, 2019. Skylight Books is located at 1818 N. Vermont Ave. in East Hollywood.

Skylight books is housed in a great art deco building on a busy street.

A great mix of people showed up and I liked the people who came out for the event.

They had my books up behind the cashier’s counter. I need to be more animated in my photos. I look like I just woke up from a nap.

Here I am doing my presentation. That’s wonderful Harrison Albright up on the screen.

I enjoyed doing the event and I’m thankful for everyone who showed up. Thanks Skylight Books for hosting the event.
