At Vroman's on Thursday, May 16, 7pm, Anchee Min discusses & signs The Cooked Seed. An immigrant story that takes Min from the shocking deprivations of her homeland to the sudden bounty of the promised land of America, without language, money, or a clear path. It is a hard and lonely road. She teaches herself English by watching Sesame Street, keeps herself afloat working five jobs at once, lives in unheated rooms, suffers rape, collapses from exhaustion, marries poorly, and divorces. But she also gives birth to her daughter, Lauryann, who will inspire her and finally root her in her new country. Min's eventual successes - her writing career, a daughter at Stanford, a second husband she loves - are remarkable, but it is her struggle throughout toward genuine selfhood that elevates this dramatic, classic immigrant story to something powerfully universal.

Pasadena Heritage members, friends and visitors will have more opportunities to tour Pasadena’s original downtown. New for 2013, the Old Pasadena Walking Tour is being offered monthly on the first Saturday of each month. Old Pasadena is now a premier shopping and dining destination, but was once a blighted, under-utilized area. Without Pasadena Heritage, it would have been demolished! When founded 35 years ago, saving Old Pasadena was a top priority. Now it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalizations in the country. As you wander Old Pasadena with one of the trained docents, you will find many beautiful and unusual details. During the research process, it was discovered that the old alleyways had remained virtually unchanged since Pasadena’s earliest days. Some alleyways even retain their historic signs, which are protected today. First Saturdays in 2013: May 4, June 1, July 6, August 3, September 7, October 5, November 2, and December 7.
