The public is invited to a book launch for "No Place Like Home: An Architectural Study of Auburn, Alabama," on Dec. 10 at 4 p.m. at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities at Pebble Hill.

Auburn is well known as a college town and as a historic Southern village in central Alabama. The architecture that presently constitutes Auburn's built environment deserves the same level of recognition. From structures on the campus of Auburn University to historic churches and other buildings across the town, Auburn's architectural record is worth celebrating and protecting. In "No Place Like Home: An Architectural Study of Auburn, Alabama"―a companion volume to "Lost Auburn: A Village Remembered in Period Photographs"―co-authors Delos Hughes, Ralph Draughon Jr., Emily Sparrow and Ann Pearson highlight the buildings of Auburn that are distinguished by age, celebrated residents, distinctive design and historical importance. The architectural character of "Old Auburn" lives on in the enduring structures found throughout the city.

The event is free, open to the public and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben St.
