Event description

Description

Celebrating the release of my book "Brown & Sharpe and the Measure of American Industry." We will have free wine, beer, and finger foods, with a jazz trio. We start at 4 p.m., have a brief ceremony between 5 and 5:30 or so, and depart at 7. Books will be available for sale at $39.95, but there is no obligation to buy. We meet in the open-air courtyard of Building No.4, the Sharpe Building, off Holden Street. This is the historic complex where Brown & Sharpe was based from 1972 till 1964. Peak employment here hit 12,100 in WWII. There's plenty of parking at 255 Promenade Street, and tours of the complex will be available.
