Public invited to hear iconic Phoenix speakers on Oct. 29 at A.E. England Building

The Phoenix Phabulous Storytelling Salon is free to the public on Wednesday, October 29 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the community room in the A.E. England Building located at the Arizona State University Downtown Phoenix campus.

Speakers include noted authors and historians Jana Bommersbach, Shelly Dudley, and Frank Barrios as well as community leaders and development experts Grady Gammage, Jr., Larry Lazarus, and Joy Mee.

Topics feature the early stewards of Phoenix, the era of air conditioning and shift from agriculture to industry after World War II, as well as the unique evolution of downtown Phoenix through high-rise development from the 1960s to mid-1980s.

During the presentations, artists will be capturing the highlights from each of the three topics in order to create additional murals to be added to the Phoenix Phabulous History Mural collection, on display at the A.E. England Building. This indoor mural collection depicts nine time periods in Phoenix history.

The evening is presented by Phoenix Phabulous Experience, City of Phoenix and Arizona State University at the Downtown Campus. The A.E. England Building is located at 424 N Central Ave (at Taylor St.), Phoenix, Arizona, 85004.
