A Tale of Two Books @ Central

A Tale of Two Books @ Central

The authors of Cranston Revisited and Cranston Through Time invite you to go on a photographic journey that chronicles the history of Cranston and its citizens’ lives. The first book features vintage photos along with captions describing how people throughout our city’s history lived, worked, traveled, worshipped, studied, played, and were governed. The second book pairs vintage photos of buildings and landmarks in the various villages that make up Cranston with modern photos of what is now located at the same sites. You’ll get a chance to test yourself on how well you know your city.

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to produce a book, you’ll enjoy hearing the problems with the first book and how the authors overcame them while writing the second book.

Free and open to the public. Register below to receive email reminders about the event or contact the library for assistance. Copies of the books will be for sale.
