Since its opening in the early 20th century, Overton Park and the many institutions within it have been sites of transformative importance for Memphians. Join us as Brooks Lamb ’17 celebrates the release of his new book, Overton Park: A People’s History, which traces the park’s story from the perspective of those who shaped it. In this exciting conversation, Lamb will draw on his extensive research and groundbreaking approach to discuss Memphians’ rich and complex relationship to this crucial space.
Brooks, a 2016 Truman Scholar, is currently the conservation projects manager (Rural Lands) for The Land Trust for Tennessee.
A book signing will follow the event.
