Northshire Bookstore and Manchester Community Library are proud to present as part of the library's Summer Wednesday's series Edward Maeder discussing the history of shoes based on his fascinating book Walk this Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes.

Famous for his trademark use of unique materials and his creation of one-of-a-kind, "million dollar" shoes for Oscar nominees, American designer Stuart Weitzman's personal collection of antique shoes features a similarly eclectic range. Lavishly illustrated with one hundred color photographs from the Stuart Weitzman Collection, this new volume explores the impact of twentieth-century design and culture on the evolution of women's shoes from 1870-1980. It is a must-have for all shoe fans.

Edward Maeder is a leading costume and textile historian and curator, and the founding director of the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto. He has held curatorial positions at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
