500 Blankets

The following content has been mined and edited from a press release from the Peace & Justice Academy: This story actually began in October, 2012, when the students of the Peace & Justice Academy participated in the United Methodist Church’s Shalom Summit in downtown Los Angeles. It was the 20th anniversary of the 1992 L.A. [...]

The Big Truck That Went By

The Big Truck That Went By

When the title of Chapter One is “The End,” you know this non-fiction work is going to be heavy-duty. It also turns out to be much more than that. Here is Hometown Pasadena’s first installment of a book review by a local book club. For this occasion—wonderfully, but atypically—the author of The Big Truck That [...]

Waking

              WAKING Of morning light on your hands, two paper lanterns on the mahogany nightstand and last night’s shadows rescinding into the room’s crevices.

Roasted Acorn Squash & Brussels Sprouts Salad

Roasted Acorn Squash & Brussels Sprouts Salad

This salad blends my favorites with protein-packed quinoa. Quinoa is an ancient grain that is native to South America. It comes in golden, red, and black varieties, with the golden variety being the most readily available and delicately flavored. You can purchase quinoa, along with pepitas (hulled, toasted pumpkin seeds) at a natural foods store. [...]

Ann Erdman: Coming to Terms

Sarah Ruhl‘s play Eurydice has its opening performance at A Noise Within this Saturday, March 16th. With “beautifully spare and poetic imagery,” Eurydice has been described as “achingly poignant” (The Washington Post) [...]

This does not fall under the typical “event” that Hometown Pasadena covers, but we thought our readers might be interested—our female readers in particular, or even that significant other who wants to—or needs to—earn brownie points. Fresh Produce Clothing, new to Colorado Boulevard in the heart of Old Pasadena (you can’t miss the storefront that’s [...]
