“Shades Creek:Flowing Through Time,” debuts at Friends of Shades Creek’s Salamander Festival this coming Saturday.
Jan. 26, 2019
It has taken over three years to write a book about Shades Creek. Accompanying the book’s words on 216 pages are 365 photographs, maps and drawings to layer the narrative with visuals–from aaaah to informative. The Birmingham Historical Society consider this one of their most important publications to date, says Marjorie White, BHS executive director. This Saturday, January 26, the book will be available for the first time. By coming to the Salamander Festival and becoming a member of Friends of Shade Creek, you will receive one of the first books, autographed by authors and with a special Salamander Festival stamp – For book information click here.
