Author Chip Jacobs Speaks at Flintridge

On November 7 at 6p.m., Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse welcomes Chip Jacobs, author of the novel ARROYO (Rare Bird Books). He is joined in conversation with historian Paul Ayers.

Set against two distinct epochs in the history of Pasadena, California, Arroyo tells the parallel stories of a young man and his dog in 1913 and 1993. In both lives, they are drawn to the landmark Colorado Street Bridge, or “Suicide Bridge,” as the locals call it.

Wrought with warmth and wit, Jacobs’ debut novel digs into Pasadena’s most infamous structure and the city itself. In their journey to discover the source of the bridge’s macabre alter ego, Nick Chance and his impish mutt interact with some of the big personalities from the Progressive Age

including Teddy Roosevelt, Upton Sinclair and Charles Fletcher Lummis.

For more information, contact Gail Mishkin at (818) 790-0717. Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse is located at 1010 Foothill Blvd.
