William Saroyan at the Boulder Creek Library
We've completed our time at the Boulder Creek Library. We were exceptionally pleased with the response and want to thank the library's incredibly kind staff and patrons!
After our incredibly well-received exhibition at Arion Press to open the year, we’ve been working at bringing smaller exhibits to life, and we’re happy to announce our first, opening August 1st at the Boulder Creek Library in Boulder Creek, California, running until September 1st. The exhibition features twelve small cases displaying artifacts of Saroyan’s life and times, including books, artwork, photos, manuscripts, and ephemera from the life of Saroyan. Topics include Saroyan's lyrics, The Time of Your Life, The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze, his novel and the film The Human Comedy, his theatrical output, and more.
The library is located at 13390 W Park Ave, Boulder Creek, CA 95006 about one block up from CA Highway 9. Hours are Monday through Thursday 10 AM–6 PM, and Friday and Saturday 10am to 5pm. The library is closed on Sundays.
At 4pm on Thursday, August 17th, the Library will also feature a talk by Archivist Chris Garcia on Saroyan, focusing not only on his life and works, but on his connections to California, the Bay Area, and to the San Lorenzo Valley.
We hope you’ll stop by this exhibition and tell your friends! For those unaware, Boulder Creek is a lovely small town, still re-building after the ravages of the CZU fires of 2020, so come and plan a day in this wonderful mountain town punctuated by a visit to our display dedicated to Saroyan!
