Author Talk: Bill Double

Author Bill Double will present his book Charles E. Hires and the Drink That Wowed a Nation, which is an effervescent biography of Charles Elmer Hires, the Philadelphia pharmacist who introduced root beer to the American public. Books will be available for purchase.

Bill Double is a Philadelphia-based freelance writer and author of Philadelphia's Washington Square.

This program is co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and the Philadelphia City Institute Library. It will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level and we regret there is no elevator.
