Dr. David Casarett, author of SHOCKED…the podcast

Yes, it was a bone-chilling and cold to the touch Tuesday night when Dr. David Casarett talked about his book, Shocked–Adventures In Bringing Back The Recently Dead.

But, because Tom Ellis was there to record the author event, we are able to bring back Dr. Casarett, right before your very eyes…

Enjoy!

Not too long ago, there was no coming back from death. But now, with revolutionary medical advances, death has become just another serious complication…

On Tuesday, February 24, 7:30pm, the author of Shocked, Dr. Casarett, will visit the Library to talk about his book that traces the colorful history of efforts to revive the dead. The book is entertaining, informative, and at times, funny. Yes, funny. I also found one reviewer who described the author as having a keenly-honed sense of curiosity and a killer wit.

And Tuesday of this week, architect James B Garrison, author of Stone Houses: Traditional Homes of R. Brognard Okie, talked about his book in the Winsor Room. Stone Houses focuses on the work of Okie, the eminent architect, and showcases his houses in pastoral settings that really do take your breath away.

Phil Wallis, Executive Director, Audubon PA, was there for inspiration, as were members of Radnor Bird Town, Radnor Conservancy, and Radnor Township’s EAC.

Owner of Do It Best Hardware, (in Wayne) Lou Muth, donated what this bird nerd would consider the best part of the program…the drawing for free bird stuff!

Thank you so much, Lou!

Jim-Garrison-Stone-Houses-794x1024

 

 

James B. Garrison, architect, and author of this gorgeous book, will visit Radnor Memorial Library on  Tuesday, February 3, 2015, at 7:30PM. Radnor Historical Society is our co-sponsor for this author event.

Garrison will talk about Okie’s design and his impact on American residential architecture. Okie is known for sensitive restorations of historic buildings in the Colonial Revival style. Built from 1904 to 1943, these dwellings exemplified our basic dream of living in a place of stability and comfort. Stone Houses showcases Okie’s houses in pastoral settings, set along hillsides and beside streams, with deep fireplaces, thick beamed ceilings, and wide plank floors. Beautiful color photographs in Stone Houses are by Geoffrey Gross.

Jim Garrison, a Strafford resident of 20 years, co-founded the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust and has served as President and Chairman Emeritus for the Board of Trustees of The Old Eagle School, where Okie also served as trustee. Jim now lives in a 200 year old stone house near Phoenixville.

Books will be available for purchase. Refreshments will be served.

I hope to see you there!
