A Homecoming, of Sorts

A Homecoming, of Sorts

What would you do if all your stuff went up in smoke?” Megan Edwards knows. In 1993, Megan Edwards‘s house was the first of 200 to burn down in the 1992 Altadena wildfire dubbed “the fire of the future.” Suddenly “stuff-less,” Edwards and her husband decided not to rebuild. Instead, they grabbed the family dog and set out […]

The Soul of Vietnam

The Soul of Vietnam

On June 19, Distant Lands hosts Larry D’Attilio, a photographer and now author of The Soul of Vietnam, which “seamlessly explor(es) from North to South… express(ing) an awareness of subjects from the magnificent to the mundane.” “I had no intention to create a journalistic view of the country,” states Larry D’Attilio, “instead I wanted to describe the […]

Scenes from LitFest Pasadena 2017

Scenes from LitFest Pasadena 2017

Unsurprisingly, Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold packed the courtyard, standing room only. He’s a soft-spoken, engaging speaker with an unexpectedly dry humor and, as expected, a great storyteller. He’s always been a big draw at LitFest Pasadena. At LitFest 2017 held on May 20 and 21, all the panel subjects, speakers, readers, and poets […]

Jo Nesbo @ All Saints

Jo Nesbo @ All Saints

We first became attached to Harry Hole, Oslo detective, in The Snowman. Of course, that’s no. 7 in the Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole (“Hoo-leh”) series, so we’ve had to backtrack, as well as catchup. The newest release is The Thirst and Vroman’s presents Nesbo in conversation with Hollywood Reporter editor Andy Lewis at All Saints […]

Getting Off on Sinatra: A Copper Black Mystery

Getting Off on Sinatra: A Copper Black Mystery

Editor’s Note: Because of rain, this event has been rescheduled for May 20, though author Megan Edwards is no longer able to attend. Our thanks to Flo Selfman, member of the Independent Writers of Southern California, for information regarding a relatively new author—who’s also a former resident of Altadena… “What would you do if all your […]

A Stitch in Time

A Stitch in Time

“Living without language.” Can you imagine. In 2007, Pasadena native Lauren Marks woke up in the Critical Care Unit of Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, Scotland. She woke up into The Quiet. “I was an American actor, director, and PhD student in New York City, touring a show to the International Fringe Festival in Edinburgh,” Marks […]

Passings

Passings

The summer was just starting yet like a fast ride it was over. The man and the woman arrived at the end; everywhere they sensed the night blooms and crickets. They yearned for the clean, ironed sheets of blue sky that folded into the past. The man and the woman stood in the yard by […]

Jeff Guinn: The Road to Jonestown

Jeff Guinn: The Road to Jonestown

Regarding the characters predominant in our political arena today, the history that follows gives us pause. We can recall the shocking news of the killing of US Representative Leo Ryan along with three journalists during an investigatory trip to Jim Jones’ “People’s Temple” in Guyana on November 18, 1978. Among the wounded was Ryan’s aide, current Congresswoman Jackie […]

Louie, Take a Look at This!

California Gold, anyone? Even though reruns have continued since the death in 2013 of host Huell Howser, if you need a bit more immersion and are pining for the story behind the story, check out Luis Fuerte’s Louie, Take a Look at This! On April 8, Fuerte is “in conversation” with Patt Morrison of KPCC at […]

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Stirring Up Fun

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Stirring Up Fun

We still remember years ago when our girl went on a Buffy the Vampire Slayer binge watch—and sucked us right in with her. But Buffy is long in Sarah Michelle Gellar’s rear view mirror and on April 10, she will discuss and sign her cookbook Stirring Up Fun with Food: Over 115 Simple, Delicious Ways to […]
