Join us as John Gurda, historian and storyteller, shares stories about Milwaukee’s neighborhoods from his newest book, Milwaukee: City of Neighborhoods. He will be signing books
after the lecture. The price is $35 per person and will include one drink and light food.
Milwaukee: City of Neighborhoods is published by Historic Milwaukee, Inc. This 466-page book is the most comprehensive account of grassroots Milwaukee ever published. Based on a popular series of posters published by the City of Milwaukee in the 1980s, the book features both historical chronicles and contemporary portraits of 37 neighborhoods that emerged before World War II, an ensemble that defines the historic heart of the city. The book also features 11 new neighborhood posters by artist Jan Kotowicz, who created the original series.
