GLENDALE—Tell Me: Sharing Bread & Migration Stories

December 6, 2019 @ 11:00 am12:30 pm

Note: This event was previously listed as taking place on November 1. It has since been rescheduled to December 6.

GLENDALE—Does your family have a traditional bread? On the evening of December 6, the Glendale library will invite patrons to break breads from across the globe and share their most memorable stories of migration and Glendale. The library’s recent exhibit Tell Me – Stories of Migration to Glendale: Breaking Bread was presented with support from a Humanities For All Project grant that allowed the Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department to chronicle stories of migrants, recent migrants, and second- and third-generation immigrants that make up the Glendale community. Stories of family origin and migration are deeply personal and relate to the notion of “breaking bread” during family celebrations and get-togethers where stories and memories are shared.

Friday, December 6, 7 pm – 8:30pm  Downtown Central Glendale Library Central Auditorium 222 E Harvard Street Glendale CA 91205-1017 Admission is free. Register here. Three hours of free parking is available in the parking structure at the Northeast corner of Harvard Street and Artsakh Avenue. Please bring in your parking tickets for validation.

This program is part of a project entitled Tell Me: Stories of Migration to Glendale that is supported by California Humanities through a Humanities for All Project Grant.
