LBN BOOKBITES - Good Reads for MAY 2009

L.A.'s ORIGINAL FARMERS MARKET COOKBOOK - Meet Me at 3rd and Fairfax  by JoAnnCianciulli

The Farmer's Market on 3rd in LA is one of my favorite places on the planet and has been since I arrived in LA in the late 70s. I thank JoAnn for creating this amazing historical on one of LA's most renowned food and people venues. I also commend her on the fine job she did collecting the history and recipes from the numerous vendors, and I thank these vendors, many of whom I have known for years, for sharing their secrets. You will love learning about the many business owners and celebrity shoppers who have frequented this market since the late 30s. You will also enjoy making some of the great old recipes that appear on the pages. Gratzia Miela!!

Stone Architecture in Santa Barbara released at Casa de la Guerra as Part of 1st Thursday in May
New book from the Santa Barbara Conservancy explores the fascinating history of stone architecture in Santa Barbara

The Santa Barbara Conservancy will celebrate the release of its new book, Stone Architecture in Santa Barbara, on May 7, 2009, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM as part of 1st Thursday at Casa de la Guerra. The inspiration for the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation’s latest exhibit at Casa de la Guerra, "A Legacy Set in Stone: Santa Barbara Stone Architecture 1870-1940,” the book explores the fascinating history of stone construction in Santa Barbara.

 While documenting the miles of stone walls that line many of the streets of Santa Barbara, members of the Santa Barbara Conservancy realized the immense value of the area’s stonework. Through meticulous research, the conservancy produced this volume using photographs both historic and modern that capture the timelessness of stone construction.

 Co-author and professor of history emeritus at UCSB, Dr. Richard E. Oglesby, will be honored for his contribution to the book. Featuring a stone cutting and wall building demonstration by David Tait Masonry, the Conservancy will also introduce their new docent led walking tour highlighting unique stone architectural elements in downtown Santa Barbara.

Books will be available for purchase ($21.99). For more information visit www.sbconservancy.com
