John Gallagher, Senior Business Columnist of the Detroit Free Press and author of several books on architecture, will address members of the Book Club of Grosse Ile at their annual dinner.
The evening will begin with cocktails followed by dinner at 7:00 and Mr. Gallagher’s presentation at 8:00. He will speak about his latest publication, Yamasaki in Detroit and entertain questions about his book afterwards. Minoru Yamasaki, as most Detroiters are aware, designed not only the former World Trade Center, but also the Michigan Consolidated Gas Building, Temple Beth-El in Bloomfield Township, and many landmark buildings on the Wayne State University campus. Mr. Gallagher’s book focuses not only on Mr. Yamasaki’s life, but also on his artistic motivations and his singular ability to craft delightful, tranquil spaces within his works.
The public is invited to attend; book club membership is not a prerequisite. If you would like to make reservations for the dinner, please contact Ilona Macek at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 10, one week in advance.
The price is $25.00 per person.
