      EVENT DETAILS
      City in a Garden book talk with author Andrew Busch

      Author, professor, and former Austin resident Andrew M. Busch, PhD, will be speaking about his new book, “City in a Garden: Environmental Transformations and Racial Justice in Twentieth Century Austin, Texas” (University of North Carolina Press, 2017) at the Austin History Center on Thursday, April 25. Busch traces Austin’s development through the twentieth century and asks readers to consider the social ramifications of sustainable urban development. Austin’s story helps us to understand the limits of liberal public policies as they apply to racial discrimination and segregation. The talk should be of interest to city planners, environmentalists, and people interested in Austin’s history and future. There will be ample time for a community discussion about the book as well as about Austin’s contemporary development. Event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
