Oct. 24 with Ingrid Croce:
Croce will discuss the biography on her late husband, legendary singer-songwriter Jim Croce, as well as her successful business experiences. Croce is widely credited with leading the revitalization of San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter when she opened Croce’s Restaurant & Jazz Bar. I Got a Name: The Jim Croce Story is a revealing portrait of a great artist as well as a moving love story that captures the rise of the burgeoning counterculture of the 1960s and early 1970s.

Nov. 8 with Janice Steinberg:
Steinberg is an award-winning journalist and author of five mystery novels, including the Shamus Award-nominated Death in a City of Mystics. The Tin Horse is a rich multigenerational story about the intense, often fraught bond that sisters’ share and the dreams and sorrows that lay at the heart of the immigrant experience. Steinberg’s character sketches and historical glimpses of Los Angeles’ Boyle Heights Jewish district make readers feel a kinship to the story. For more information visit http://www.thetinhorse.com.
The events are made possible in part by the Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation’s Robert H. Gartner Cultural Endowment Fund.
