The Friends of the Ramona Library are excited to announce two author talks in the month of October. On Thursday, October 19 at 2:00 PM, punster, Union-Tribune columnist and language specialist Richard Lederer will offer "A Treasury of Halloween Humor." Before this program of history, lore, jokes, puns, and funny verse about Halloween, sign his books. See the flyer below for details.
On Friday, October 20 at 5:00 PM, author Lisa Belkin will talk about her latest book, Genealogy of a Murder. According to Ms. Belkin's website, "this book is a multigenerational tale of three families whose paths collide one summer night in 1960 with the murder of a police officer." The book examines the immigrant experience, working class struggles, prison reform, medical experiments, politics and war, the nature/nurture debate, epigenetics, the infamous Leopold and Loeb case, and the history of motorcycle racing. The book also has a local connection!
Both events will take place in the Community Room of the Ramona Library.
