Americans, known and unknown

The City of Pasadena does a lot things well.  One of the things at the top of the list is the annual "One City, One Story" community discussion presented by the Pasadena City Library.   

To quote the City's website "The idea of getting a community together to discuss a single book actually arose in Seattle and quickly spread across the US, coming to Pasadena in 2002. Since beginning, the Pasadena Public Library has hosted ten titles and with each presentation the list of collaborating organizations, firms, volunteers, and businesses grows". 

 will give you more details about the book and you'll find a link to the many, many activities that began as early as March 3rd and will continue through March 28th.  

The Conversation with the author will be taking place tomorrow night at All Saints/Forum beginning at 7:00 p.m.  

There will also be an opportunity to be a part of a more intimate conversation with the author tomorrow from 2:00-3:00 p.m at the Pasadena Senior Center. 

Please come and be a part of the conversation.  As they write on the site - "In sharing we all learn".


  1. From what I've read so far, she's a wonderful storyteller.

  2. I read the book but unfortunately couldn't be at the author talk.

  3. She was charming and generous of her energy. I'm guessing that it would be easy to give an oft repeated presentation, but she was very present in energy and thoughtful responsiveness. I haven't finished the book yet. Don't tell me how it turns out.
