We shall welcome author and historian Gene Anderson who lives in Oakland. He will share stories from his recently published book of some of the extraordinary people who have shaped Oakland from the time of the Peralta family to present day. Mr. Anderson is also a noted leader for Oakland Urban Paths, the Oakland Walking Tours Program and the Oakland Heritage Alliance.
