Author Event at Chatham Library: Winifred Gallagher Discusses Her Book, “How the Post Office Created America”, Dec 2

Award-winning author & local resident, Winifred Gallagher, will talk about her most recent book, “How the Post Office Created America”. A masterful history of a long underappreciated institution, Gallagher examines the surprising role of the postal service in our nation’s political, social, economic, and physical development.

“How the Post Office Created America” is an ode to a little-heralded but flagship government enterprise. [Gallagher] reminds us … that the post office forged a communications revolution just as far-reaching as the later telegraph and internet revolutions.”—The New York Times Book Review

This presentation will be followed by a question and answer period, a book sale & signing, and a reception.

Tunstull – From Fashion to Fine Art: The Tunstull Art Odyssey

tunstull_cover
Columbia County authors (and friends of mine), Glenn Tunstull and Jelani Bandele, are the collaborative team behind a new book titled, Tunstull – From Fashion to Fine Art: The Tunstull Art Odyssey. The book tells the story of Glenn Tunstull’s journey from fashion illustrator to fine artist, and uses Tunstull’s artwork to accompany the text.

From the book’s Amazon page,

“This telling story captures Tunstull’s creative growth and accomplishments through racial barriers and societal limitations in the U.S. and abroad, his move to Africa and Europe to explore creative opportunities in concert with his former partner, fine artist Toyce Anderson, his subsequent return to the US as an international artist struggling to regain his footing in his original career, and his pivot to teaching, and eventually fine art, as a world traveler. The stunning visuals highlight Tunstull’s creations for such iconic titles as Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue, W and Playbill, celebrated designers such as Joseph Abboud, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Nicole Miller, and renowned retailers such as Henri Bendel, Blooomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus, as well as his exploration as a fine artist, from representational watercolors and oils to abstracts. From cover to cover readers will enjoy Tunstull’s exciting journey and follow every step of his creative life.”

Official Launch Date: Monday, October 3, 2016
