The Brown Bag speakers forum had a huge turnout last Monday for the East Bay’s own, Malcolm Margolin. The writer of East Bay Out started Heyday Books back in 1974 and it has grown into a well-known independent publisher. The speaker related the joy of publishing by sharing the “coming-to-be” stories of many of the books he has worked on. After many stories, he stopped and said, “Enough!” But the audience wouldn’t hear of it. They asked for more stories from his trove of publishing adventures.
Here is the slate of speakers for the Albany YMCA/Albany Library Brown Bag Speakers Forum:
February 14- Lois Flood: The Legacy of Isadora Duncan with demonstration dances!
March14- Trena Cleland: Exploring and Creating Personal Histories
April 11- Irma Slage: Psychic Encounters
May 23– Karen Sorensen: Local Historian
All programs begin at 12:30 p.m. and run till around 2:00 p.m.
