Plans for Dublin Reads are moving right along. We have just confirmed a date for the author, David Mas Masumoto, to come for an author program on Monday night, October 13th at 7 p.m.
Mr. Masumoto will be bringing books to sell and personalize for each reader. Several book discussions have been scheduled including a brown bag book discussion on Tuesday, October 21 at noon and a book discussion at the Heritage Center on Saturday, October 25th at 3:00 p.m. We are working on getting pubic performance rights so that we can show the film The Real Dirt on Farmer John. All of this coincides nicely with the Heritage Center’s Farm Life Exhibit scheduled for October 21 through November 19th. Multiple copies of the book have been ordered.
It turns out in another little unplanned coincidence that October is “Eat Local” month in the Bay Area. As we get closer to Dublin Reads we will share some good websites related to eating locally grown food. Today I want to point out the “Buy Fresh, Buy Local” website at http://guide.buylocalca.org/. The second edition of the Bay Area Local Food Guide is available for downloading. You can sign up for their newsletter of special events, enter your zip code and find a listing of resources for buying locally grown food, as well as restaurants and grocery stores selling locally grown food. Enjoy!
