Thank you to all who came to hear her this afternoon, and welcome to those who plan to come on Tuesday evening to hear this engaging presentation. Remember, May 16th at 1310 W. Magnolia Blvd. with informal reception at 6 pm and the talk beginning at 7 pm. However, please plan on coming a bit earlier than you had planned, as we’ve received notice of filming that evening in the next block to our west — and parking could be at a premium. [We have three lanes, for three cars each, behind our building off the alley.]
Now, here are photos from today’s talk….
When you come to hear her Tuesday, be sure to sign in at the front desk. Astrid will be selling copies of her books — which she will inscribe for buyers if they wish — so come prepared. She has done a great job telling the story of emigration to America from her home region, and these two books will make great gifts to family members who may wonder why genealogy fascinates you so!! The first explains what the journey was like, and why people chose to make it. The second tells the specific stories of eight families from her home town, including how they managed to adjust to their new country.
This just in — there’s going to be filming activity in the next block of Magnolia Tuesday afternoon and evening. What does that mean to us? Simply that parking may be at a premium!
We received notice from TVM Productions, Inc. that filming will commence at 5 p.m. at 1420 W. Magnolia (Tyerman’s Automotive). While we’ll be mostly unaffected, we learned that parking may well be restricted in front of our building, on Magnolia Blvd. all the way up to Mariposa Ave. The West side of Griffith Park Drive, from Magnolia south to the alley, is also potentially “off limits.”
We’ve called to alert the company to our event, and it may be that part of the restricted spaces may be released for our use — but we won’t know for sure until Tuesday. So, if you’re planning to come Tuesday evening (6 pm reception, 7 pm talk & book signing), do plan on coming early enough to secure parking. Thanks!!
Don’t forget to come hear Astrid Adler at the IGS Library!
This Saturday, May 13th, with an informal reception at Noon, her talk about her new books at 1 pm, and a book signing afterwards (and another opportunity to ask questions or chat). And again on Tuesday, May 16th, with reception at 6 pm, talk at 7 pm, and the book signing and questions/chat afterwards.
There will be food trays at the receptions. Parking can be either in the lanes behind our building, or on the neighborhood streets.
And a reminder — we’re closed this Sunday, as it’s Mother’s Day….
