Presidio Officers’ Club | 50 Moraga Ave, The Presidio, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
The traditional book club reimagined as an inclusive public program that anyone can take part in, whether or not they’ve read the book. Enjoy contextualizing remarks by Presidio Trust historian, Barbara Berglund, and then either participate in or listen to the facilitated discussion of both the book and the general topic that follows. Think of this as part book club, part graduate seminar, part Parisian salon.
This four-month series honors, commemorates, and explores four anniversaries that deepen our understanding of the Presidio, the Bay Area, and California: the 200th and 210th Anniversaries of the visits of two Russian ships to the Presidio, one in 1816, the other in 1806; the 170th anniversary of the start of the Mexican-American War in 1846; and the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the United States’ entrance into World War II.
Free but an RSVP is required.
