Opelika Observer

Enjoy a book talk by Delos Hughes, Ralph Draughon Jr., Emily Sparrow and Ann Pearson on Tuesday, Dec. 10 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at Pebble Hill. The authors will be discussing their new book “No Place Like Home: An Architectural Study of Auburn, Alabama.”
Auburn is well-known as a college town and as a historic Southern village in central Alabama.
The architecture that presently constitutes Auburn’s built environment deserves the same level of recognition. In No Place Like Home: An Architectural Study of Auburn, Alabama, the co-authors highlight the buildings of Auburn that are distinguished by age, celebrated residents, distinctive design and historical importance.
The architectural character of Old Auburn lives on in the enduring structures found throughout the city.
The event is free, open to the public and will be followed by refreshments.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
For more information, visit cla.auburn.edu. The venue is located at 101 S. Debardeleben St.
