Book Launch | PLACEMAKERS: Emperors, Kings, Entrepreneurs – A brief History of Real Estate Development

November 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Real estate development is the world’s second-oldest profession. And it’s on the tip of everybody’s tongues these days. Join Gordon Price, director of SFU’s City Program, as he interviews Herb Auerbach and co-author Ira Nadel about their new book “Placemakers,” a panoramic history of the world as seen through the lens of real estate development. You’ll discover what’s motivated real estate developers throughout the ages, aside from money and ego.
A book signing and sales will follow the event.
Placemakers: Emperors, Kings Entrepreneurs — A Brief History of Real Estate Development will be published by Figure 1 Publishing in October 2016. It’s available for pre-order at major booksellers, including Indigo and Amazon.
