Share Your Riverchase Photos for Book

Hoover Books

This will be Heather Jones Skaggs’s third book of photos.

Hoover’s Heather Jones Skaggs will release her third book, which will be titled “Riverchase.”

Part of a series from Arcadia Publishing entitled “Images of Modern America,” the book is scheduled for the 2016-2017 collection.

“Riverchase was always on my mind while writing the second book, ‘Images of America Hoover,’” Skaggs says. “I felt Riverchase could be its own title, but the vintage series the first two books were in did not fit its story.”

After debating over several topics, Skaggs kept coming back to Riverchase as the idea.

“Images of Modern America” covers decades from the 1960s to present day with full-color photographs.

Skaggs says the Riverchase community and business district flows with the series’ time frame perfectly.

“People are passionate about the community, and it will be an honor to write this book for them,” she says.

She’s asking anyone with Riverchase photographs from the 1970s to present day to email them to her at heather@bluffparkal.org or bluffwriter@gmail.com.

Heather Jones Skaggs is also a freelance writer for Hoover’s Magazine.
