Elizabeth Garber to discuss ‘Memoir of an Architect's Daughter’ in Lincolnville
LINCOLNVILLE — On Wednesday, November 14 at 7 p.m. the Lincolnville Community Library will host Elizabeth Garber of Belfast who will discuss her book Implosion: A Memoir of an Architect's Daughter.
Garber's father, Woodie Garber, was a visionary architect whose experimental, modernist designs sparked both admiration and controversy. He designed the Cincinnati Public Library, a downtown landmark, and created Sanders Hall for the University of Cincinnati. An extraordinary, twenty-seven story glass tower dormitory, Sanders Hall was plagued from the start by major design problems, safety concerns, and years of vandalism.
After only eleven years, the university abandoned the building and in 1991, demolished it by implosion. Meanwhile, the Garber family experienced its own implosion caused by Woodie's volatile, tyrannical behavior and worsening mental illness.
Elizabeth Garber's beautifully written and heartbreaking memoir received a Kirkus starred review. Copies will be available for sale and signing at the event. Garber is a published poet and former Belfast poet laureate.
The Lincolnville Community Library is at 208 Main Street in Lincolnville. For more information call (207) 706-3896 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
