Trails restoring, trees in peril, books worth reading… here’s what’s happening that you should know about:
- Imperiled public trees may be spared after all: Pasadena Star-News
- Stimulus money? One of our favorite trails, closed since the slides of 2005, is finally being repaired: Altadenablog.com
- Prospect Park Books had no idea there was a gallery right here in Prospect Park (or Prospect Park-adjacent): Arroyo Monthly
- The Vroman’s blog is particularly entertaining right now. I was happy to see Marisa Silver’s lovely God of War on the L.A. Times shortlist for its Book Awards, but sorry not to see two of my other favorite recent novels, both written by Southern Californians, on the list: The Little Book by Selden Edwards and City of Thieves by David Benoit.
