An evening with a local author


Tuesday, July 28, 2015, 7:00 PM

Local historian and author
Michael E. Tolle will discuss his newly released book:

“They’ve Been Down So Long… Getting Up’s Still on Their Minds”

Local historian Michael Tolle, author of “What Killed Downtown?”, has expanded his study of small town America to encompass eight classic mill towns on the Lower Schuylkill River between Reading and Philadelphia: Pottstown, Royersford, Spring City, Phoenixville, Norristown, Bridgeport, Conshohocken and West Conshohocken. He examines both their history and their future with a narrative directed at the community activists in each town, and, by extension, those who seek to revitalize similar small urban communities elsewhere.

This program is free and open to the public. For information call 610-272-0297 or email contact@hsmcpa.org.
