There’s a brand new book on the history of Atwater Village, one of the neighborhoods along the Glendale Narrows stretch of the Los Angeles River.

From Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series, the book is titled, simply, Atwater Village. It was written by Netty Carr, Sandra Caravella, Luis Lopez, and Ann Lawson all of the Friends of Atwater Village (FAV.) I played a small role in helping out with their chapter on the river and the bridges over it.

The book is chock-full of great old historic photos of the neighborhood, including heretofore unpublished images of the L.A. River in flood stage, and much more. 

FAV is hosting a few upcoming book-signing events:

  • Thursday August 25th 2011, from 5pm-10pm during Summer Nights on the Boulevard, at Alias Books, 3163 Glendale Blvd.
  • Thursday September 15th 2011, from 7pm-9pm at Pot-ted – 3158 Los Feliz Blvd
  • Tuesday September 27th 2011, from 4:30pm-7:30pm at the Atwater Village Branch Library – 3379 Glendale Blvd

You can also purchase the book at these fine Atwater Village businesses: Alias Books East (3163 Glendale Blvd), Luis Lopez Automotive (2751 Fletcher Dr), Pot-ted – 3158 Los Feliz Blvd, Speed Co Fax & Pack (3371 Glendale Blvd) or Vince’s Market (3250 Silver Lake Blvd.) And of course, on-line at the publisher’s website (though it looks like they’re not taking orders until August 1st 2011) or via mail-in order form at FAV’s website.
