Carmichael's Bookstore says
This book studies the microcosm of Louisville and its surrounding rural counties and the intersection of two characteristics associated with the formation of the middle class: suburban residence and white-collar employment. In turn-of-the-century Kentucky, a number of families acquired homes at the end of the Broadway trolley line within an area that came to be known as the Cherokee Triangle (named for Cherokee Park rather than the Native American nation). Bower examines three generations of families who migrated to and lived within the Cherokee Triangle in order to trace the transition of rural farmers and cultivators to city laborers and white-collar workers.

Stephanie Bower is professor emeritus of history at the University of Indiana, Southeast. She is the author of Famism: The Impact of Demographic Factors on Family Structure, and her articles have appeared in Hispanic American History Review, The Americas, LOCUS, and Historical Methods.

Carmichael's is excited to host Stephanie for this free presentation and book signing.
