Event Descriptions

Author Talk & Book Signing: On Friday, May 10, 2019 at 7 p.m. the library will host Michael H. Hodges, author of “Building the Modern World: Albert Kahn in Detroit.” 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, fine arts writer for The Detroit News, 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.
