Description

Join us and MI member author Lee Bruno for an exploration of nearly a century of waterfront history, ranging from the Gold Rush to the Jazz Age. Mr. Bruno will tell tales of some of the enterprising entrepreneurs, reckless financiers, tireless reformers, visionary architects and city planners, and bohemian artists, musicians, and poets who all heeded the call of promise and headed to the Bay Area. Come celebrate the famous (and infamous) characters whose charismatic personalities and perseverance created the institutions, businesses, and cultural fabric of San Francisco. Mr. Bruno will present and sell his new book Misfits, Merchants and Mayhem - a collection of essays and historic photographs.
