Vromans Bookstore in Pasadena has scheduled some intriguing book signings this week.On Wednesday, September 22, 2004 7:00 PM, Kevin Starr discusses & signs Coast of Dreams: California on the Edge, 1990-2003.
Starr, widely acknowledged as California's premiere historian, examines our state in a decade when it was sometimes stumbling, sometimes humbled, but, more often, flourishing with its usual panache.
Ask him how he feels about the semi-enthusiastic reviews, via LA Observed, he's getting for the lastest chapter on California's history. Our sympathy is with Starr; it's gotta be tough waxing lyrical about a dreamland that's turned into a disappointing nightmare.
Meanwhile, Gary Hart comes out of hiding to advise Kerry on foreign policy and national security and sell some books at Vroman's on Thursday, September 23, 2004 at 7:00 PM. Hart will read and sign his book, The Fourth Power.
