From Goldrushers to Glassholes: Community in The Changing Landscape of San Francisco.
The Conversation Begins. . .
Please join Green Apple Books and The San Francisco Elks on Wednesday, April 2nd from 6:30PM – 8:30PM at the SF Elks Lodge when we welcome five of the Bay Area’s most outstanding cultural historians for a ‘town hall meeting’ to discuss the issues facing San Francisco’s communities today, while also providing an illuminating framework of The City’s extraordinary history of culture and adaptation.
Enjoy a rare opportunity to visit a San Francisco jewel, the normally private Elk’s Lodge, opened in 1925 on Union Square. Take part in the discussion with notable panelists: Gary Kamiya (San Francisco Magazine Executive Editor and author of Cool Gray City of Love), Reverend Cecil Williams (pastor emeritus of Glide Memorial Church and co-author of Beyond the Possible), Julia Flynn Siler (author of House of Mondavi and Lost Kingdom), John Law (co-founder of Burning Man Festival and co-author of Tales of San Francisco Cacophony Society) and Joel Selvin (Chronicle culture editor from 1972—2009 and best-selling author). Or just kick your heels, enjoy a cocktail, and take it all in—this will be a conversation that you won’t want to miss!
Green Apple Books and Music has been a fixture of the Bay Area literary scene since opening in 1967, and is perennially acknowledged with various ‘Best Of’ awards annually. The San Francisco Elks, a major charitable organization, is the oldest extant Elks Lodge in America, established in 1863. The Elks National Foundation has 183,000 active members and has an endowment fund valuing $430 million dollars.
Book sales and author signings will occur before and after the panel discussion, with a percentage of the proceeds going to selected charities. A $3.00 charitable donation will be requested at the door for this event, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
