Bob Calhoun to talk True Crime at Bay Area Library Events in October
Updated: Oct 15, 2021
With Halloween around the creepy corner, Bay Area libraries have booked Bob Calhoun to discuss The Murders That Made Us in a pair of Zoom talks moderated by local literary superstars. Both events are virtual so you don't have to be anywhere near the San Francisco peninsula to watch them. And even if you live around here, you won't have to worry about traffic, but you do have to sign up. Here's more info on the talks and how to register.
San Mateo County Libraries (Wednesday Oct. 20th, 7-8 p.m.): Bob's ancestral library system for most of his life is not only hosting this talk a week and half before Halloween, but they're also giving away hundreds of copies of MTMU at participating branches starting on October 4th! So if you're in Belmont, Brisbane, Pacifica or Portola Valley, you can show up and score your very own copy. Bob spent a night in August signing books at the San Mateo County Libraries main office so any book you get from them will bear his autograph. Fellow Peninsulan Peter Hartlaub of The San Francisco Chronicle will be moderating and these two can really spin some lore. Click here to sign up.
San Francisco Public Library (Wednesday, Oct. 27th, 7-8:00 p.m.): Bob is joined by the amazing Alia Volz for a talk on MTMU and the crimes that bind us here in the Bay Area. With Alia's bestselling cannabis memoir, Home Baked: My Mom, Marijuana and the Stoning of San Francisco, she has her own unique perspective on some of the events Bob covers in MTMU, so this talk is going to be heavy, man, heavy. Or is that groovy? Could be groovy. Register here, or you can watch on SFPL's YouTube channel.
