The MIT Press Bookstore and the Boston Book Festival present Susan Maycock and Charles Sullivan of the Cambridge Historical Commission discussing their Building Old Cambridgebook, Building Old Cambridge, at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 27, at the Cambridge Public Library.

This abundantly illustrated volume from the Cambridge Historical Commission traces the development of Old Cambridge from isolated settlement to site of Harvard College to suburban community and bustling intersection of town and gown. Based on the city’s comprehensive architectural inventory and drawing extensively on primary sources, Building Old Cambridge considers how the social, economic, and political history of Old Cambridge influenced its architecture and urban development. Along the way, readers me such figures as William Brattle and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and view buildings designed by architects including H. H. Richardson, Eleanor Raymond, Carl Koch, and Benjamin Thompson.
