Where Peachtree Meets Sweet Auburn- Author Gary Pomerantz
The Auburn Avenue Research Library hosts Gary Pomerantz, a former journalist for the AJC and The Washington Post who now lives in San Francisco and lectures at Stanford University, discussing the book Where Peachtree Meets Sweet Auburn, originally published in 1996.
Where Peachtree Meets Sweet Auburn documents the history of Atlanta — from Civil War through Civil Rights, and leading up to the city’s hosting of the 1996 Summer Olympics — through two prominent families: the Ivan Allens, and John Wesley Dobbs and his progeny.
