ONE BAY ONE BOOK: Uncovering Family Secrets

  • Jewish Community Library 1835 Ellis Street San Francisco, CA 94115 (map)

Free program with free garage parking on Pierce Street between Eddy and Ellis streets.

The novel Moonglow is structured around the outpouring of untold family stories. Likewise, a fair number of people encounter stories that long went untold in their own families. What are these stories? Why were they withheld? How were they discovered? What have they meant to the people who discovered them?  Join panelists Judy Baston, Wendy Beck, and Mani Feniger, who learned a family secret that had a life-changing impact on how they saw themselves. There will also be time for audience members to share their own stories in this interactive evening.

Moderator Jim Van Buskirk is the Library’s Drop-In Book Club facilitator and possessor of his own family secret.
