Authors talk about ‘Sun Sticks and Mud’

-A A +A

Presentation > Trio will be part of the Authors Speak Series

By Special to the Monitor


Authors Bart Kaltenbach and Barbara Anschel, along with photographer Steve Fitch, have created a book chronicling the history of habitation and architecture in the desert Southwest with a personal slant. 

They will be part of the Authors Speak Series, at 7 p.m. March 28, in the upstairs rotunda at Mesa Public Library.

 The area they chose is 1,000-miles x 1000-miles, from west Texas to the Pacific coast, Chihuahua, Mexico to Utah. The book comprises essays on architectural history, including details of all manner of materials and techniques right up to new, sustainable green buildings; a travel journal of the authors’ quest to document the many structural styles and variations across state and national boundaries; and photographs of unusual buildings: ancient structures to cutting edge contemporary residential and commercial architecture. 

The title, “Sun Sticks and Mud,” gives a clear indication of the focus of the materials covered.
