Highlights and Upcoming events

Thank you to all our supporters who came out and made the 3rd Annual Jazz Evening a success. The food provided by GJ Cooks was delicious, the Lydia Lewis Quintet was divine and the Millwood Country Club was special. We exceeded our goal by a wide margin due to the great response from our friends.

Terry McMillan’s book, Who Asked You? will be the book discussed on Sunday, August 10, at the museum from 3 to 5 PM.

Terry McMillan fell in love with books as a teenager while working at the local library. She studied journalism at UC Berkeley and screenwriting at Columbia before making her fiction debut with Mama, which won both the Doubleday New Voices in Fiction Award and the American Book Award. She lives in Northern California.

Come join the discussion of Who Asked You on Sunday, August 10.  Having read the book is not a requirement of attending the discussion.
