John Gallagher, Author of Reimagining Detroit: Opportunities for Redefining an American City to Speak at the Rochester Hills Public Library

Join us for an evening with John Gallagher, author of Reimagining Detroit: Opportunities for Redefining an American City on Thursday, February 17th at 7 p.m. at the Rochester Hills Public Library.  Reimagining Detroit presents a wealth of ideas and strategies for making Detroit a smaller yet a better city. It explores issues surrounding urban agriculture, economic revitalization, governance models, and much more. It is written in an easy, accessible style, and it aims to contribute to a broad public debate about the potential for reinventing Detroit.

John Gallagher also wrote the book Great Architecture of Michigan and co-authored AIA Detroit: The American Institute of Architects Guide to Detroit Architecture. John has covered architecture, urban development, and economics for the Detroit Free Press since he joined the newspaper in 1987. A native of New York City, John attended DePaul University in Chicago and Columbia University in New York. He and his wife, Sheu-Jane, live along Detroit’s east riverfront, and enjoy bicycling and sailing.  After the presentation, books will be available for purchase.
