Public Is Invited to A Book Signing For Keepsake Livingston Bicentennial Book

December 19, 2013 at 6:50 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - On Sat., Dec. 21, author Barry Evenchick will be signing copies of the newly published book, “A Bicentennial Portrait of Livingston Township,” from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 pm in the Livingston Library Program Room. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at $10, and the author will be commenting on the book, informally answering questions about information in the book as well as on Livingston's history. In addition, at 1:30 he will speak briefly about Livingston's future as the township heads into its third century.

“For any of us who have been in Livingston during the Bicentennial, this book is a beautiful keepsake of our town's history and how we celebrated our 200th birthday,” said Eleonore Cohen, co-chair of the Bicentennial observance. “We want to give everyone an opportunity to obtain one of these books before the end of the Bicentennial year.”  

The hardcover book contains over one hundred pages of historic photographs, as well as pictures of Livingston during the Bicentennial year. In addition to historical sections on “The Early Years” and “Post-War Years and Suburban Development,” the commemorative book contains chapters on Livingston's schools, businesses and houses of worship.  

Barry Evenchick, a lawyer and former attorney for Livingston Township, is often referred to as Livingston's unofficial historian, having written and spoken about the town's history on a number of occasions. The commemorative book was commissioned by the Bicentennial Committee and was written especially to provide residents with a keepsake of “Livingston at 200.”
