Lecture - The Hidden Waters of San Francisco

The Hidden Waters of San Francisco
Book Club of California
312 Sutter St #500, San Francisco, CA 94108

Monday, July 11, 2016, 5-7 p.m.

Everyone knows that San Francisco is surrounded on three sides by water. But few realize that live, running water bubbles up from the ground throughout the city, from Islais Creek in Glen Canyon, to a rivulet high up on Twin Peaks, to a spring in Alemany Farm. Gary Kamiya will look at the fascinating history of San Francisco’s lost waters and explore the surprising ones that still exist.
Gary Kamiya was born in Oakland, grew up in Berkeley and has lived in San Francisco since 1971. He is the author of the bestselling Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco, which was awarded the 2013 Northern California Book Award in creative nonfiction.
