The History of Here by Akum Norder Book Release Celebration
Join us in celebrating Akum Norder’s newly released book, The History of Here: A House, the Pine Hills Neighborhood, and the City of Albany, which follows follows Albany’s Pine Hills neighborhood through more than one hundred years of change. A short talk based on the book will be followed by a reception, with a book signing by the author. Books will be available for purchase.
The History of Here is being released by SUNY Press. Gregory Maguire says, “Akum Norder has contributed to the literature of American life a paean of neighborliness of which Garrison Keillor would be pleased to read, and perhaps E. B. White and even James Agee would take pleasure in this could they look in from the great beyond. Rooted in the keenly seen particular, this history has implications about the organic growth of American cities in general, and what we mean when we talk about ‘the good old days.’”
