Berkeley Walks @Claremont

Join Janet Byron and Bob Johnson, co-authors of the best-selling Berkeley Walks, for a walk in the Elmwood District, starting at the Claremont Branch library. While the area is highly regarded for its tree-lined streets and fine architecture, few know about the many famous (and infamous) people who lived here. Come with us on the level 1.5-mile jaunt to learn more. Afterward signed copies of Berkeley Walks will be available for purchase so you can explore more of Berkeley’s secrets.

Author Talk @Claremont

Join us for a conversation and book signing with Catherine Harrington, author of the recent memoir The Longest War: A Psychotherapist’s Experience of Divorce, Custody and Power.  Catherine's marriage, so typical of the time, was one of power imbalance, people pleasing, and safety.  A bitter divorce and vitriolic custody battle ultimately forced her to reclaim personal power.   Now in her 80's, Harrington is able to understand the whole picture of how she moved from a place of enmity to one that fostered her inner strength and healing.
