"Destination Charlotte" launches on Thursday

As a sales and marketing guy in Charlotte's hospitality industry, Greg Greenwalt often needed gifts for VIP clients and visiting dignitaries. What would be perfect, he thought, would be a book showcasing current images of Charlotte and the surrounding area. When he couldn't find one, he decided to write it himself.

The result? "Destination Charlotte" (Lorimer Press; $29.95), by Greenwalt, with photos by Paul Purser. The book includes snippets of history, both long-ago and recent. But what you'll notice most are the striking color photographs.
Lorimer Press launches the book 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, at Doubletree Guest Suites SouthPark, 6300 Morrison Blvd.
