Friends of the San Pedro Library presents
Authors Day with LISA SEE
arrow
Sunday, April 19, 2015
2:00 PM

pay



The Friends of the San Pedro Library proudly present LISA SEE, an award-winning, best-selling author.  Ms. See was born in Paris but grew up in Los Angeles, spending much of her childhood with her father’s family in Chinatown. Her first book, On Gold Mountain was a national bestseller and a New York Times Notable Book.  Her ensuing novels, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, Shanghai Girls and Dreams of Joy, were also NYT Bestsellers.  In her work, Lisa See brilliantly illuminates the strong bonds between women, romantic love, and love of country, and in her recent novels, dives into the Chinese-American experience. 
 
Her most recent book, CHINA DOLLS, See returns to these themes in a story about Asian-American nightclub performers of the 1930s and 1940s.  The Washington Post commented, "This emotional, informative and brilliant page-turner resonates with resilience and humanity," while O Magazine called China Dolls "a spellbinding portrait of a time burning with opportunity and mystery."

Klezmer Juice with Gustavo Bulgach
Co-Produced with Temple Beth El of San Pedro
arrow
Thursday, May 07, 2015
8:00 PM

pay



Klezmer Juice bandleader and clarinet player GUSTAVO BULGACH was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he learned traditional Klezmer from his family.  He now lives in Los Angeles, and has traveled around the globe, finding that Klezmer - Jewish soul music - is the “soundtrack of the Diaspora.” 

Inspired also by the artistic and secular life of his home country, Bulgach's performances are fresh and exhilarating. He masterfully fuses the music of Eastern Europe with Latin undertones including the lush sounds of tango.  With his band and guest artists he creates an uplifting and soulful, new world experience. 
 
Bulgach has played as a member of the House of Blues Foundation house band in Hollywood, California since 1994, backing artists Little Richard, Taj Mahal, and The Wailers, among others. Klezmer Juice was featured in the Hollywood mega hit movie “The Wedding Crashers,” starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn.

$15.00 workshop | $30 workshop & concert 
 
Though packed with nods to the vintage sci-fi of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne both in song titles and an eye-catching cover, the [Discoveries]album feels grounded in the now, with ... a gracefully ambitious compositional voice - Chris Barton, LA Times 
 
There’s a lightness in Nelson’s touch reminiscent of Red Garland, an Oscar Peterson dazzle to his technique...
