Book discussion Wednesday March 5, 2014 at 7pm

Local author and Cleveland Park neighbor, Mark N. Ozer will discuss his book at the Tenley-Friendship Library, 4450 Wisconsin Avenue NW

“Washington DC Streets and Statues: Walking in the Steps of History”  Who are the persons whose familiar names are part of our everyday lives as we live and visit on the streets of Washington? Why are they there? When did they appear and for what reason? 

 This book provides a broad perspective about the history and design of Washington DC that is both highly interesting and accurate.
