STEEL: In Person

That’s
right–you can see and hear me in the flesh, as I kick off my “world” book tour
and expound on the glories of Buffalo architecture.  

Mark your calendar
for a great event sponsored by Preservation Buffalo Niagara,
 to be held this Friday, December 18th, in the amazing Buffalo City Hall Council Chamber. I will be joined by author
Richard Reisem and Photographer Andy Olenick, who have teamed up on four full color photography books, including Classic Buffalo.  Richard Reisem has also written a book of historic Photos of New York
State. We will all be speaking about our recent publications and on
architecture in general.  We will also be signing books before and after
the presentation.  Books by the speakers as well as recent publications
by Buffalo Heritage Unlimited
 will be available for sale during the
event.

For my
portion of the presentation, I will go way beyond the pages of my book, Buffalo:
Architecture in the American Forgotten Land
,
 to
set the stage for its publication.  I have some great images to show, many
which are very rare and have never been published, many which will shock and
surprise, many which will bring back memories for those of a certain age.
 The spectacular city hall venue alone is reason enough to join me and the
other authors; if you have never been in the council chamber you are in
for a real treat. It is the perfect place for a discussion on
architecture. 

Here is what
Preservation Buffalo Niagara says about my book, Buffalo: Architecture in the
American Forgotten Land:

“…
spoken in graphic images of buildings of all types, styles, sizes and
locations. It is an “amazing resource on one of America’s most under-appreciated cities.”  With superb photographic quality, it is a must-have
for Buffalo residents or any fan of American architecture. The 158-page book is
a soft Cover, first edition, photographic folio of one of America’s least known
most architecturally rich cities with a brief introductory essay. A portion of
the sales will benefit Preservation Buffalo Niagara.

Please come
on out Friday, do some stress-free Christmas shopping, get a unique gift, and
talk architecture in one of America’s most beautiful spaces.  How can you
go wrong?
