Two Great November Events for Adults at the Redwood City Public Library
Redwood City, CA - November 4, 2005 - The Redwood City Public Library announces two outstanding events for adults taking place in November.
First, on Thursday, November 10th, an Autumn Gardening Workshop comes to the Downtown Library at 7:30 pm. Late Fall on the Peninsula is the time to plant and prepare for the holidays – this workshop will offer great ideas. And, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to plan now for a beautiful garden this spring.
All are invited to bring their gardening “frequently asked questions” to this event! For example, how to keep holiday poinsettias looking beautiful all season long? Or, how to save money by making plantings more drought tolerant? Presenter Erhard Wegman is part of the family that has owned Wegman’s Nursery in Redwood City for 45 years, so there are sure to be many quality tips for the home gardener.
Then, on November 12th at 2 pm in the Downtown Library, join author Rose Castillo Guilbault, former columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle and editorial director at KGO-TV discussing her memoir Farmworker’s Daughter: Growing up Mexican in America. Recently released, it tells the touching and inspiring story of her coming-of-age. Many of Guilbault’s essays written for her award-winning column “Hispanic USA” have been anthologized in over 100 books.
The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and is the learning center of our community.
