Author Talk & Book Signing May 10

...Read More

 

The Alma Public Library will host Michael H. Hodges, author of “Building the Modern World: Albert Kahn in Detroit” on Friday, May 10, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the Library. The event is free and open to the public.

 

Hodges will speak about industrial architect Albert Kahn, a giant in Detroit’s heroic age, the visionary who invented the humane “daylight factories” that helped birth both modern manufacturing and modern architecture. In his lecture and slideshow, the author, a Detroit News reporter, will review Kahn’s local legacy, his vigorous defense of Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry murals against attack, and his role helping the Soviets beat the Nazis in 1941-42.

 

After the presentation Hodges will be available to answer questions and sign books, available for purchase, along with Detroit architecture postcards. Refreshments will be provided.
