Last week Duke University Press threw a great party to celebrate the launch of the second edition of Jean Bradley Anderson's landmark local history Durham County: A History of Durham County, North Carolina. Attending the party were local media, Durham notables, and some of the generous supporters of the book. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, Brenda and Keith Brodie, Steve and Edie Cohn, Duke Photography, Tom and Kim Miller, Duke University's Office of Durham and Regional Affairs, Nancy Schiebel, and Measurement Incorporated. Without these and other donors, we would have been unable to produce such a beautiful and high quality volume. We also thank Jim Wise of the News and Observer and Kevin Davis, of Bull City Rising, who provided us with wonderful cover endorsements. Read more about Anderson and the book in this profile in the Durham Herald-Sun. Then check out photos from the fun party, planned by Development Coordinator Bonnie Perkel. Thanks to Amanda Sharp and Emily Young for taking pictures!
