The Comic Book Guide to the Mission Program

Over 60 patrons attended yet another "happening" event at the Mission Branch!

Lauren Davies and over 10 of the anthology's contributors were on hand to discuss and read from newly published "The Comic Book Guide to the Mission". Lauren herself projected pages on a screen from the anthology as each contributor read from their piece. It was an evening to remember.

There are lots of more Adult programs and events coming to your Mission Branch. On Monday, August 1, we will offer a "Write your Will" workshop. Stuart Bronstein, an estate planning and probate lawyer in San Francisco for more than 30 years, will help participants create fully functional wills. Space is limited so please call us at (415) 355-5734 to sign up. As with all of our programs, the workshop is free!

See you at our next event!
