Tomorrow night (Friday, November 15th at 7 pm), the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation will host a rare event at the historic Green and Green home of the late First Lady, Lucretia “Crete” Garfield. The evening includes a reading from the novel “Arroyo” by the author Chip Jacobs followed by a few words about the Garfield House, and then a lively discussion with the author on the making his whimsical novel.
The iconic Colorado Street Bridge is the central character of local author Chip Jacobs’ newly-released novel “Arroyo.” Set in the year 1913, Chip’s fascinating romp of historical-fiction profiles the life of a young inventor and his sometimes-clairvoyant dog who gets a bad case of reincarnation which propels the story to the year 1993. You do not want to miss learning about that!
Immediately following the event, copies of Chip Jacobs’ novel “Arroyo” are available for purchase and signing by the author – this beautifully-designed hardcover book makes a fabulous holiday gift!
There will also be a free raffle of souvenirs from a few Southern California amusement parks that went out of business, including Marineland, Lion Country Safari, and little-known Japanese Village and Deer Park (compliments of the Rick Thomas Collection).
