Metropolitan Dreams (Larry Millett)Larry Millett will be at the Roseville Library on Thursday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m. for a discussion and signing of his new book, Metropolitan Dreams: The Scandalous Rise and Stunning Fall of a Minneapolis Masterpiece, as part of the Ramsey County Historical Society's History Revealed series.


Against the thrumming backdrop of turn-of-the-century Minneapolis, architectural critic and historian Larry Millett recreates the impressive rise, and eventual fall, of the massive Metropolitan Building. Metropolitan Dreams is a tale of urban growing pains and architectural ghosts and of colorful, sometimes criminal characters amid the grandeur and squalor of building and rebuilding a city’s skyline.
