The Latest from Carrboro Book Beat

Carrboro: Images of America by David Otto and Richard Ellington (broadcast 2-14-2011)  This is a wonderful book for lovers of not just Carrboro but of small town America in all its variety.  Through the extraordinary richness of well annotated photographs, the authors walk us down streets, into backyards, through cemeteries and factories and onto front porches that span the years from the mid 1700s to the present.  Unlike most histories they don’t stop there but describe some of the projects planned for Carrboro’s future.  An engaging  addition to any bookshelf.  Find out more at david-otto-richard-ellington-
