Lately I’ve been reading memoirs. It surprises me that I like them so much because I tend to read novels, and because I write fiction. I can’t imagine writing my own memoir. Too many people are still around to find out about it and hate me for it. I suppose I could sugarcoat it but [...]

Authors in Our Midst

Authors in Our Midst in an ebook written by participants in the Spring 2013 Courage to Write Writing Workshop led by author/instructor Esther Bradley-DeTally and held at La Pintoresca Branch Library.

Flying to Los Angeles

Flying to Los Angeles

              I am now old enough to understand the moon. We are the same type of creature, our own subtle gravity guilelessly manipulative. We reflect the Father’s light back upon creation so we may remain obscured and at least halfway in comfortable, classic black. Women slide so easily into [...]

Blooms That Last Forever

Blooms That Last Forever

We readily admit that this subject does not embody the exact definition of “garden” in Home & Garden because the blooms we are talking about are not of the living, photosynthesizing variety.

Cecile Richards at PPP&SGV Fall Benefit

This may be a controversial post for those who don’t believe in “choice,” but our exposure to Planned Parenthood—in regard to annual check ups, health exams, and gynecological appointments—goes back decades and travels from coast to coast, so we are here to encourage those who support the work of Planned Parenthood to dig into their [...]

Speaking of: Shirley Jahad

Speaking of: Shirley Jahad

It’s the voice we hear in our head. “This is Shirley Jahad for Weekend Edition.” Kind of husky, in the throat, but tinged with a lyricism. The timber denotes a cool head, a sharp and curious mind—serious discussion looms on the horizon or an adventure is about to be undertaken. Saturday, July 27th, Pasadena Public Library‘s [...]
