An Evening with Alice McGrath at the E. P. Foster Library in Ventura

As part of a series of events celebrating “The Big Read,” a community-wide reading initiative, the E. P. Foster Library in Ventura will present Alice Greenfield McGrath, on Wednesday, October 8, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. in the Elizabeth R. Topping Room at the E.P. Foster Library in downtown Ventura.
The “Big Read” book selection is Bless Me, Ultima, by Rudolfo Anaya. The book is set in the 1940’s, a decade when big social changes were sweeping America.
In this special program, Ventura resident Alice Greenfield McGrath will talk about her own involvement with the notorious Sleepy Lagoon case.
This event is co-sponsored by the City of San Buenaventura and the San Buenaventura Friends of the Library and is free to the public. Light refreshments will be available.
The E.P. Foster Library is located at 651 E. Main Street in historic downtown Ventura. The Elizabeth R. Topping Room entrance is on Main Street, just west of the main entrance to the Library.
