Patrick Butler, longtime Edgewater resident launched his latest book, The Hidden History of Edgewater and Uptown at the Edgewater Library. The event was co sponsored by the library and the Edgewater Historical Society on November 16, 2013. Over 125 people attended. It was standing room only as Patrick spoke about the book and his past experiences as a local news reporter for the Lerner news. He read some sections of the book and had the audience laughing at some of the stories from the past. The audience was a mixture of young and old and after his talk he opened the floor for questions. Among the inquiries were the status of the Uptown Theater, and the Cuneo hospital and what happened to the Lerner News. Women and Children First ordered copies of the book to be sold at the event and they sold out. Patrick brought some additional copies and spent the rest of the time signing copies “free of charge.” Congratulations to Patrick for the success of his book.
