One Book One City
In December, I mentioned that the Sierra Madre Public Library's choice for this year's One Book One City is the latest offering from Laura Hillenbrand, the author of Seabiscuit (in which our own local racetrack, Santa Anita, played a part). The book, "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption," is the true story of Lieutenant Louis Zamperini, who was shot down during World War II. I've read this wonderful book, and can tell you that it grabs you on page one, and doesn't let go until you turn the last page. The library is hosting several events this month. Tomorrow (Saturday), World War II historian Dan King will be speaking at the library at 10:00. For more information on this and other upcoming events, please click here.
