"Historic Homes of New Albany" book signing is Sunday, Nov. 8 at Destinations.

Inquiring minds want to know if Jeff Eastridge, the mayor's personal historic preservation monetization liaison and a noted local philanthropist, will be there to buy a copy -- for future reference only, because you never know when you'll be called in to save a building by demolishing it.

Here's a description of the book, as borrowed from an on-line bookstore. There is no need for me to identify it, as you'll be buying your copy at Destinations, anyway.

New Albany's historic homes boast unique histories and fascinating stories of those who inhabited them. Founded in 1813 below the falls of the Ohio River, the city was Indiana's most populous by the middle of the nineteenth century. Many leading citizens built grand mansions and family dwellings that beamed with prosperity and influence. The architectural legacy during these formative years continued into the early twentieth century and produced historic neighborhoods with a rich collection of housing styles. Join authors David C. Barksdale and Gregory A. Sekula as they delve into the history of New Albany's most cherished old homes.
