Senior Scam Stopper
Crowell Public Library, Friday, May 1 at 10am
Senator Carol Liu (D- La Canada, Flintridge) is partnering with the California State Contractor’s Licensing Board to host a Senior Scam Stopper workshop on Friday, May 1st from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Crowell Public Library in San Marino. Residents are invited to listen and engage directly with speakers from various government agencies on how to avoid scams relating to construction, medical care, and automotive repair. Crowell Public Library is located at 1890 Huntington Drive in San Marino.

“Many scams target seniors who are often vulnerable because they live alone, are more trusting, and don’t always have access to reliable information,” said Senator Liu. “That is why I am pleased to bring critical up-to-date fraud protection information directly to seniors at community locations.”

Interested residents are encouraged to contact Senator Carol Liu’s office at: 818-409-0400 for more information.

Sen. Carol Liu represents about 930,000 people in the 25th Senate District, which includes Burbank, Bradbury, Glendale, Pasadena, La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Montrose, Altadena, San Marino, Shadow Hills, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Sunland-Tujunga, Monrovia, Duarte, San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont, Glendora, and Upland.

California Bookstore Day in San Diego!
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, May 2 at 10am
What is Bookstore Day?

California Bookstore Day, on Saturday May 2, 2015, is a project of the Northern and Southern California Independent Booksellers Associations, representing hundreds of bookstores across California and the nation. This is an in-store celebration -- join us in either location to take part!

We believe indie bookstores are an essential part of lively communities, the free-flow of ideas, and the thrill of discovery.

CBD will harness the creative power of authors and publishers in a giant celebration of the written word that will drive readers to brick-and-mortar bookstores. For one day, and one day only, a number of very limited-edition, unique, word-based items and books will be available in more than 100 independent stores across the state. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill signed first editions—these are literature-based art projects, unique books, and collector’s items created for this event only.

To learn more about other celebrations, visit California Bookstore Day's web page.

author Debbie Yamada: Echoes of Gold Mountain
Crowell Public Library, Sunday, May 3 at 2pm
A game of hide-and-seek uncovers an unexpected treasure chest of “riches” for two kids visiting their grandparents’ old store in Northern California. In Echoes Of Gold Mountain, the children discover a secret room containing letters dating back to the 1850s. Readers are transported back in time to get a glimpse of the lives of the early Chinese pioneers who came to “Gold Mountain” in search of opportunity during the Gold Rush. The story was inspired by a school project created by author Debbie Yamada’s daughter when she was studying California history in the fourth grade. After doing some research, Ms. Yamada discovered that at the peak of the California Gold Rush one out of every five miners was, in fact, Chinese, numbering close to 50,000 Chinese miners. Set against this historical backdrop, the author sets out to create characters and imaginary letters that embody the hopes, dreams and struggles of the Chinese sojourners of long ago. Echoes of Gold Mountain adds another dimension to the events of the California Gold Rush by shedding light on the people who were often overlooked in American history. Ms. Yamada’s presentation will cover the inspiration for the book, the writing process, development of illustrations, a reading of selected passages and a question and answer period.

Debbie L. Yamada is a second generation Chinese American born and raised in Southern California. She has a B.A. in art history from the University of California, Irvine and a M.A. in Asian art history from the University of Hawaii. She has shared her research about the Chinese miners during the California Gold Rush and her writing experiences with numerous historical societies, authors’ festivals, teacher and library conferences, museums and schools throughout California. She is a retired art teacher for elementary school students.

Debbie Yamada has written a historical novel that can be enjoyed by readers eight to eighty. Bring the whole family to this free event. Light refreshments will be served. (notparoo)
