Russ Lopez will read selections from and sign copies of his new book, Boston 1945-2015: The Decline and Rebirth of a Great World City. Published by Shawmut Peninsula Press, this book traces the path of the city from its decades of economic depression that marked it as one of the most distressed urban areas in the country to its current prosperity that is the envy of cities around the world. This story includes the new residents of the city who are creating and benefiting from this turn around and those others who have been pushed out and closed off from the new economy powering Boston.
This event is free and open to the public.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
