Local author Annette Kassis will visit the Central Library on Tuesday, November 27 (6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.) for a discussion and signing of her new book on a former Sacramento landmark, Weinstock's: Sacramento's Finest Department Store (The History Press, 2012):
While many Sacramentans will remember Weinstock's spectacular Christmas displays, the signature children's milk bar and the gala openings of suburban stores at Country Club Plaza and Sunrise Mall, historian Annette Kassis goes beyond the storefront to uncover the philosophy that placed Weinstock's at the forefront of business innovation. More than a retail establishment, Weinstock's one-hundred-year legacy brought high fashion, progressive politics and the leading edge of modernization to California's Capital City.
In addition to the presentation, a historical display featuring images, catalogs and newsletters from Weinstock & Lubin Co. will be exhibited outside the Sacramento Room at the Central Library through the month of November.
What: Weinstock's book discussion and signing
When: November 27, 2012, 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
