“Long Beach Art Deco” Book Signing
Just released by Arcadia Publishing, ‘Long Beach Art Deco’ celebrates, in both word and image, the Long Beach that rose from the rubble of the 1933 earthquake to become a premier Art Deco city. Authors Suzanne Tarbell Cooper and John W. Thomas are board members of the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles. J. Christopher Launi is a local photographer with an extensive collection of architectural photographs. In addition to these images, the authors were able to draw upon the archives of the Long Beach Library, the Long Beach Historical Society, and Long Beach Heritage, among others, to present a remarkable look at the Art Deco treasures of this community.
**Come down and meet the authors and pick up a signed copy of this beautiful book.
