Together We Read--Opening Event

The Pomona Public Library's Together We Read program is urging all Pomonan's (and those in Diamond Bar and Claremont as well) to read Isabelle Allende's Zorro. Events surrounding the reading of the book, which will include a live interview with Ms. Allende on November 1 (more info to come or go to the library's web site). Events are scheduled for the rest of October and through the middle of November.

On  Sunday, the Historical Society of the Pomona Valley will hold a kick-off event at the Palomares Adobe. A Deep Pit Barbeque (both beef and pork) will be accompanied by all the fixings as guests will dine in the atmosphere that Don Diego Vega and Ignacio Palomares might have enjoyed during the days of that cunning outlaw, Zorro. Come relive those days with us. There will be tours of the Adobe, a demonstration of the weaponry from the Zorro era, and, after dusk, a screening of the 1920 Douglas Fairbanks version of The Mark of Zorro.

Tickets available at the Ebell Museum, DPOA Offices, and Frantz Cleaners, or you can call the Historical Society for more information (909) 623-2198.
