The current Greenfield Public Library, housed in the Leavitt-Hovey House and built in 1797, was designed by Asher Benjamin. Benjamin was also the writer of the first architectural pattern book published in America. Author Bill Ranauro will discuss Benjamin's career and talk about his book, Asher Benjamin: American Architect, Author, Artist.
After retiring from high school teaching and coaching in 2016, Bill Ranauro turned his time and efforts to writing. His latest offering is Asher Benjamin: American Architect, Author, Artist. This is the first full-length biography of an important and overlooked figure in the architectural and artistic history of New England. Bill has authored three other books, including a memoir, West of Boston: Growing Up Red Sox in a Yankee Household.
