Presidio Book Club

@ Presidio of San Francisco

Presidio Trust, 103 Montgomery Street
San Francisco CA  94129



Barbara Berglund, Making San Francisco American: Cultural Frontiers in the Urban West, 1846-1906 (University Press of Kansas, 2007)
The traditional book club reimagined as an inclusive public program that anyone can take part in, whether or not they’ve read the book. Enjoy contextualizing remarks by Presidio Trust historian, Barbara Berglund, and then participate in or just listen to the facilitated discussion of both the book and the general topic that follows. Think of this as part book club, part graduate seminar, part Parisian salon.
At this EventExplore San Francisco's rapid evolution from Mexican outpost to crown jewel of America's western empire through its cultural frontiers where contests over race, class, and gender shaped a new social order: restaurants, hotels, and boardinghouses; the Barbary Coast, Woodward’s Gardens, and the Pacific Museum of Anatomy and Science; Chinatown's tourist terrain; the Mechanics' Institute's annual fairs; and the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition.
This event is free but due to space constraints registration is required. Please complete the registration process below. Please note that registering does not guarantee admission. Registered guests will be offered priority admission that will be honored until 15 minutes before the start of the event.Read more about our event registration policy>> http://www.presidio.gov/officers-club/events/event-registration-policy
