“Lost Providence” update

Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 2.57.40 PM.png

A month from today Lost Providence goes on sale. That’s Monday, August 28. In fact, it already can be pre-ordered. And, to revise and extend my book’s remarks (as they say in Congress), my publisher, History Press, and I are working to set up a slate of events at which the author will be present to describe the book, ruminate upon its meaning, and answer questions about whatever remains to be said, if anything.

Here is the most recent list of confirmed events. Others are in the works, including, I hope, a joint event with the author of Transforming Providence, Gene Bunnell, at the WaterFire Arts Center, followed by an appearance at WaterFire itself. What that date will be is, as they say, TBA. Probably either Sunday, Sept. 3 or Saturday, Sept. 30.

[Note: Some of the details of the  scheduled events remain to be determined, or may be subject to change (say, from lecture to reading or vice versa). Some of the venue calendars do not yet mention the event.]

About David Brussat

For a living, I edit the writing of some of the nation's leading architects, urbanists and design theorists. This blog was begun in 2009 as a feature of the Providence Journal, where I was on the editorial board and wrote a weekly column of architecture criticism for three decades. Architecture Here and There fights the style wars for classical architecture and against modern architecture, no holds barred. My freelance writing and editing on that topic and others addresses issues of design and culture locally and globally. I am a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts, and a member of the board of the New England chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, which bestowed an Arthur Ross Award on me in 2002. I work from Providence, R.I., where I live with my wife Victoria, my son Billy and our cat Gato. If you would like to invest your prose with even more style and clarity, please email me at my consultancy, dbrussat@gmail.com, or call 401.351.0457. Testimonial: "Your work is so wonderful - you now enter my mind and write what I would have written." - Nikos Salingaros, mathematician at the University of Texas, architectural theorist and author of many books.
