Join us for the book launch of Auburn: A History in Street Names by Sam Hendrix. As its title suggests, the stories within this book relate to the origins of street names. But this volume covers much more than that. It tells the stories of the Loveliest Village of the Plain and its people, street by street, over nearly two centuries.

Sam Hendrix, native of Arab, Alabama, earned a BA from the University of North Alabama and the M.Ed. from Auburn University. He spent most of his career with Auburn University as a public relations and development professional. He authored a history of the Auburn Church of Christ and a biography of founding Veterinary Medicine Dean Dr. Charles Allen Cary before publishing 'Auburn: A History in Street Names.' He and his wife, Mary Ellen, live in Auburn.

Books will be available for purchase and signing. For more information, visit
