BOSTON - July 11, 2018 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Copley Square:

History Through Architecture


Local Author Leslie Humm Cormier will be available to sign copies of book


Copley Square is one of Boston's most architecturally significant and instantly recognizable public locations. This urban square is home to Trinity Church, the Boston Public Library, Old South Church and the Hancock Tower, among other important landmarks.

The square defines the city, as well as the evolution of American architecture and urban design, from colony toward the sophistication of global European squares, moving creatively from Beaux-Arts style to International Style and Modernism.

Architectural historian Leslie Humm Cormier, PhD, explores this contemporary place from its origins as an estuary to its vital significance as a stylistic link between old-world style and new-world design.

About the Author:

She received her doctorate from Brown University as a Kress Fellow, affording her study in London and Paris. Previously a faculty member of Harvard University Extension and Radcliffe Seminars, Cormier is currently affiliated with the Boston Architectural College.
