“An East Side Album, 2nd Edition” now available!

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on October 22, 2017

The new edition of the East Side’s most coveted local history book is finally off the presses, through the bindery with improved, stronger spine, and ready for purchase!

Copies are available for $24.95 at Stone Fence (2322 Atwood Avenue) and the Olbrich Gardens Gift Shop. Copies may be purchased at the Goodman Community Center front desk for $20.00. If you contributed to the book, you may purchase one copy of the book for $15 at the Goodman Community Center. (The front desk will have a list of contributors.)

If you live out of town and would like one or more copies mailed to you, the price is $20 plus $7 shipping and handling for the first copy and $14 for 2 to 5 books (ordered at the same time). Send check made out to the Goodman Community Center to the Goodman Center, 149 Waubesa Street, Madison WI 53704.

Purchases of An East Side Album support the Goodman Community Center. Revised and expanded, the 2nd edition is full of memories of the Schenk’s-Atwood, Union Corners, and Eken Park neighborhoods.

Note: If you purchased a copy in August or September, you probably have one with unsatisfactory binding on the spine. If it hasn’t started shedding pages, it soon might. Please bring it to the Goodman Community Center front desk, where you can pick up a new copy with improved binding. We apologize for the inconvenience!
