Pasadena's Hummingbirds
Getting ready for the big blowout in Pasadena for their One City, One Story program. They have an amazing schedule over the next couple of weeks and I hope you can get to some of these lectures and presentations (wish I could!). For more info, here. The local paper did a nice profile too (Cindy says, but I hate the picture ...).

For the rest of us, here's a great tale Cindy found in the Pasadena Star-News:

"Christine Reeder (great name for a librarian) has been working on the "One City, One Story" events for "The Hummingbird's Daughter" that start this week.
The novel by Luis Alberto Urrea is set in revolutionary Mexico, "full of cowboys and outlaws, Indian warriors, cantina beauties, silly men who drink too much and desert women who in their dreams travel to the seashore," Reeder's info says.
At last Saturday's discussion-leader training, Reeder said, "We actually opened up a door at the San Rafael Library because we became too warm - and in flew a hummingbird. I though it was particularly symbolic of the book and the magical realism in it."
Cue "The Twilight Zone" ... "

Hah! I LOVE that kind of stuff!
