Eichlers, Books And Blue Summer Moons

rsz 1fullsizerender1

It was a warm night, the first of August when Blue drove me across Didion's freeways to an airy, mahogony-paneled and glass-walled California Eichler house in Orange for the Black Hill Press/Center 1888 Summer Writing Project  interview. 1888 is "a regional catalyst for the preservation, presentation, and promotion of cultural heritage and literary arts."   Kevin Staniec,the Executive Director of 1888, set the interview up and Jon-Barrett Ingels conducted it in the living room overlooking the pool.  The mood was collaborative and inspiring.  I am very excited about small presses and the potential for publishing risky, relevant, edgy and mind-expanding literature.

Check out some architectural highlights below.

The whole place reminded me of Mad Men and Big Eyes. Were they filmed at an Eichler?
