Book signing of New Castle, Delaware: A Walk Through Time
This Wednesday, December 14, from 6pm to 8pm, Oak Knoll and the New Castle Historical Society will hold a book signing of the new publication New Castle, Delaware: A Walk Through Time. Held at the New Castle Public Library at 424 Delaware Street, the book will be available for purchase as the authors sign copies. Light refreshments will be served, and brief remarks will be made by the authors.
Written by well-known Delaware authors Barbara E. Benson and Carol E. Hoffecker, the new book traces the entire history of New Castle, Delaware from its seventeenth-century settlement to today. It studies the city’s development, its current neighborhoods, and its historic architecture. The book is generously illustrated with maps, drawings, and photographs.
The authors have worked together on several projects in Delaware history. Current chair of the New Castle County Historic Review Board, Barbara Benson was also executive director of the Delaware Historical Society until 2003, overseeing its collection, exhibitions, education, and programs. Carol Hoffecker taught at the University of Delaware until 2003 and has written books and articles about Delaware and two volumes on the history of the city of Wilmington.
