AUTHOR PRESENTATION AND BOOK SIGNING

Join us on Thursday, July 7 at 6:30 p.m. as author Jon Wilkman discusses his book Floodpath.

A visionary and controversial quest for water made modern Los Angeles possible, but the failure of the St. Francis Dam on March 12, 1928, the worst American civil engineering failure of the 20th century, was a horrific reminder of human limits -- a lesson that is all but forgotten today.

In Floodpath: The Deadliest Man-Made Disaster of 20th Century America and the Making of Modern Los Angeles, Jon Wilkman, an Emmy-Award winning documentary filmmaker and author of books about Los Angeles, revisits a deluge that claimed nearly 500 lives.

Books will be available for purchase and author signing. 

For more information about this event, please call the library at 818-225-7616. To learn more about the book and the author, visit www.stfrancisdamdisaster1928.com.

BOOK OF THE MONTH: RAYMIE NIGHTINGALE

Two-time Newbery Medal winner Kate DiCamillo has a new novel for young readers. Raymie Nightingale, was written in DiCamillo's gentle prose and it tells the story of an unforgettable summer in the life of Raymie Clarke. While the story deals with complex issues of family and abandonment, it is balanced by the joy of new friendships. The book is like that perfect sip of summertime lemonade - a bit tart but ultimately sweet and satisfying.

LIBRARY TIP OF THE MONTH: RESPECT THE TURTLES

Being situated in close proximity to The Commons' turtle pond, we often see turtles nearby and around the Library. While they are fun to look at and admire, please do not touch them or relocate them. They are working on starting their families and wandering is part of this process. Please do not disrupt their journey!
