BPLG Meeting, Fundraiser and the Big Read Panel Discussion: Saturday March 24th – San Leandro Public Library

Monday, March 19th, 2012

A Saturday event?  Yes, you read it right, so break away from your usual routine and join us for a short meeting, a dinner/fundraiser and the Big Read Panel Discussion at the San Leandro Public library.  Even if you can’t make it for the entire list of events, we’d love to see you for any portion of the day so mark the date and time on your calendar and make plans to join us for a little something different.

The BPLG meeting starts at 4:00, at 5:00 BPLG Members and supporters are invited to participate in a dinner fundraiser (see details below for RSVP information and cost).  Then the Big Read begins at 7:00 so stay for a panel discussion of Sun, Stone and Shadows, a superb collection of some of the finest 20th century Mexican short stories, edited by Jorge Hernández. The panel will be comprised of BPLG members and the discussion will be lead by Jorge Hernández himself.  It looks to be a an interesting evening and a great opportunity for BPLG.
