Entertainment, live music, book sales and signings, and special speakers and presentations. Bill Minor will perform his new composition about Pacific Grove. Bring a dish for 4 to 6 to share. The greater PG community is, of course, invited as well! It’s a Community Book, after all, and writers need readers!
This event will be held from 12-2 p.m. in the Little House in Jewell Park, next to the PG Library.
Creating a Snapshot in Time
We’ve collected stories from and about everyone—folks strolling the avenues, browsing in our shops, and dining in our restaurants, hiking and biking on the Rec Trail, gathering in our coffeehouses, attending Lighthouse Cinemas, and taking their children to school—stories from all the people who are enjoying life in our special corner of the world.
Our goal is to build community through the power of storytelling, and to create a snapshot in time, a comprehensive look at the rich sweep of life in Pacific Grove in 2017, a tapestry woven of the many threads that make up our community, made richer by your contribution. Contributors are all ages, ethnicities, economic status, and other diverse orientations and eccentricities!
Life in Pacific Grove benefits the Pacific Grove Public Library
PG is not PG without the PGPL. The Pacific Grove Public library is a thriving institution and we consider it an irreplaceable part of our history. A community center for discovery and life-long learning, it is Monterey County’s only remaining Carnegie library that is still in use as a free public library.
All proceeds from the sale of Life in Pacific Grove will be donated to the Friends of the PG Library »
If you need any additional incentive to buy a look, consider that you’ll not only be contributing to our town’s legacy and heritage—as part of an important historical document that will live for generations—but that you’ll also be lending long term support for a beloved community institution.
