On September 13th , Norm and I participated in this year’s Kerrytown Bookfest. We had copies of all of our books, plus a few surprises. Since it was also my birthday, this was a “novel” way to celebrate our diverse writing projects .
Norman Tyler is author of books on city planning, historic preservation, the history of transportation, Greek Revival architecture, and the Peace Corps. He has given many presentations of these topics at national, state, and local conferences and meetings, and is proud two of his books have been translated—into Chinese and Korean. Norman is a nationally recognized professor (emeritus) of urban planning currently living with his spouse, Ilene, in a historic house in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He has served on the board of numerous community and professional organizations, and has long been a community activist who ardently cares about making a difference.
