Friends of the Library Annual Meeting and Luncheon featuring Barbara Crane

From the event description:

Join us for a lunch and a presentation by Barbara Crane, award-winning author of "When Water Was Everywhere." Once upon a time in Los Angeles, water was everywhere — in rivers that rendered the vast plain marsh and woodland and in underground streams that provided an abundance of water for people, cattle, orchards and vineyards. In Barbara Crane's novel, Mexican California and Tongva Indian village life come alive, unfolding stories that assure the novel’s themes of loss, hope and redemption resonate from every page.

When: Saturday, May 18, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
Where: The Reef Restaurant, 880 S. Harbor Scenic Drive
Admission: $35
