Santa Monica Reads: Scott McCloud: Comics & the Art of Visual Communication
Santa Monica Public Library - Main Library, Sunday, February 26 at 2pm
Comics is finally coming of age as an artistic and literary form. Now this once-maligned medium of expression is poised for new opportunities, thanks to a mutating media environment and a potential revolution in visual education. Author and comics artist Scott McCloud shines a light on these and other fascinating trends—and demonstrates why every visual choice we make matters—in a fast-moving cascade of images and ideas. A book sale and signing follows. This event is ticketed. Free tickets will be released one hour prior to the program in the Main Library lobby.

Flying the Hump in World War II
Crowell Public Library, Monday, February 27 at 7pm
In its speakers series at Crowell Public Library, the San Marino Historical Society presents quarterly history talks focusing on topics especially selected for residents of San Marino. On February 27 at 7:00 p.m., all are welcome to experience World War II from one who was there. Jeff Arnett will talk about his service in Asia including a three week flight form the United States to India, his service in Burma and China, and crossing the famous and dangerous “Hump.” According to Wikipedia, the ‘hump’ was “…the name given by Allied pilots in the Second World War to the eastern end of the Himalayan mountains over which they flew military transport aircraft from India to China to resupply the Chinese war effort of Chiang Kai-shek and the units of the United States Army Air Forces based in China. Creating an airlift presented the USAAF a considerable challenge in 1942: it had no units trained or equipped for moving cargo, and no airfields existed in the China Burma India Theater for basing the large number of transports that would be needed. Flying over the Himalayas was extremely dangerous and made more difficult by a lack of reliable charts, an absence of radio navigation aids, and a dearth of information about the weather.”*

Jeff Arnett is retired from fifty years in the investment business, fifty years of private plane piloting and fifteen years as a docent at the Palm Springs Air Museum. In recent years, he has returned to model railroading and a renewed focus on golf where he has managed to “shoot his age” four of the past five years. He was born in Los Angeles and has resided in the Pasadena-San Marino area since 1930. He graduated from South Pasadena High School in 1943, just one day before entering the Army Air Corps. After serving as a transport pilot in Burma and China for three years, he returned from the service to graduate from USC. Jeff last spoke to the Historical Society on the Pacific Electric Company and his experience riding the Red Cars. On January 11th he celebrated his 92nd birthday.

Come to Crowell Public and hear about this fascinating part of World War II history from an original source. No reservations are required. For information on the San Marino Historical Society call (626) 304-9375 or email smhistorical@earthlink.net. (notparoo)

Baroque and Romantic Elegance: Music for Solo Violin
Crowell Public Library, Tuesday, March 14 at 7pm
Bach, Tchaikovsky, Delius and John Williams are the featured composers in a program devoted to tender gestures and romantic exuberance on Tuesday, March 14 at Crowell Public Library in San Marino. Violinist Paul Stein, a 35 year member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, will perform. The unaccompanied violin demonstrates many colors and melodic contours. Bach specifically wrote some of his most profound music for violin and the richness of his harmonies which will be on display this evening, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Library’s Barth Community Room.

Paul Stein will talk about life in an orchestra and his experiences as a music teacher and as a performer of family concerts with Chamber Music Express. He created the Chamber Music Express ensemble in 1985 to introduce classical music to audiences at schools and libraries. He has moderated seminars and lectured at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute and conventions of the Music Teachers Association of California. He has been a featured soloist at the Hollywood Bowl and has worked with Zubin Mehta, Carlo Maria Giulini, Andre Previn, Esa-Pekka Salonen, as well as Gustavo Dudamel. He was principal second violinist with the Colorado Symphony and performed with the Santa Fe Opera orchestra. Born in Dallas, Paul received a Bachelor of Music from Southern Methodist University and Master of Music from Yale University. His hobbies include bridge, bird watching and aquariums, and he lives with his wife in Monrovia.
