Hi, I’m Kat

Hi, I’m Kat

I’m sitting at my computer as the clock strikes 1 a.m. My street is quiet—TVs are turned off, interior lights have been extinguished, and my daughter (her headphones having fallen finally out of her ears) is “passed out,” as she would put it. Our one remaining cat is meowing relentlessly, trying to annoy me enough […]

New Owner for Hometown Pasadena

For months now, you’ve been reading posts by Kat Ward and admiring her photographs. Now, I’m happy (and a little sad) to report that as of October 1, I’m handing the reins to Kat for good.

It’s apparently a […]

Literary Festival Hits Pasadena

Literary Festival Hits Pasadena

As home to one of the county’s best bookstores and many accomplished writers, Pasadena has always been a literary place. But it’s never had a literary event of its own, until last Saturday’s Pasadena Literary Festival of Women Authors, which took place at the Pasadena Senior Center. As typically happens with such productions, the idea […]

Welcome to the "New" Hometown Pasadena

Since we published the first edition of Hometown Pasadena in the fall of 2006, we’ve experimented with a few online platforms in the quest to find the one that best suited the personality, information, intelligence and, well, hometown-ness of the book. Today we launch the Third Time’s a Charm version of Hometown-Pasadena.com, and this time we […]
