Come to the Main Library on Wednesday, May 16th, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. to hear Fred Setterberg read from his book, Lunch Bucket Paradise: A True-life Novel. Setterberg will also talk about writing fiction in the form of a novel.
With the sharp wit of a master storyteller, Fred Setterberg chronicles his childhood in the postwar Eden of Jefferson Manor, a blue-collar suburb of Oakland. Like a Bay Area Garrison Keillor or Bill Bryson, Setterberg reveals the quirks of his family and neighbors with nuance and care. Each chapter propels him toward adulthood while poignantly exploring class, masculinity, and modern life amidst the intoxicating abundance of a new California.
Adults and teens are welcome at this free program, which will be held at the Main Library, 1550 Oak Street in the Stafford Meeting Room. For more information please call 510-747-7713.
