Book Talk and Signing

Book Talk and Signing
Posted on 10/09/2020

The Society will be hosting S. Vic Fleischer on Saturday, October 17th at 1:30 p.m. for a book talk and signing on the grounds of the Perkins Stone Mansion for his new book The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company: A Photographic History, 1891-1951.”  Fleischer’s work was published by The University of Akron Press series on Ohio History and Culture.  The book has just recently been released.


The talk will include a showing of select images from the book, as well as behind the scene discussions about the collection held at The University of Akron Archival Services where Fleischer is the archivist, head of Archival Services and associate professor of bibliography.


Fleischer will give his presentation under the tent in the lawn of the Perkins Stone Mansion on Mutton Hill. Guests will be protected from the weather so the event will take place rain or shine. The talk will begin at 1:30 p.m. followed by book signings until 3 p.m. This is a true gem of local history!


There is no cost to attend the event but guests are required to wear masks and practice social distancing. Books will be available for purchase at the Society’s Mutton Hill Gift Shop.
