One Book, One Community is an exciting community activity that invites everyone in Redwood City – young and old alike, from all parts of the City and the County – to read the same great book, at the same time! And then, get together for book discussions, literary presentations, film, music and dance performances, culinary demonstrations and other related events – it’s happening throughout October all over San Mateo County! We chose Daughter of Fortune by Latina author, Isabel Allende to allow our community to explore the themes of the novel — immigration, cultural diversity and California history — in over 60 exceptional programs. Allende, a Marin writer, will appear in conversation with public radio host, Michael Krasny, of KQED’s Forum on October 11 at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. There are no advance tickets for this free event.
