Library Live - Orange County: A Literary Field Guide


The Newport Beach Public Library Foundation presents Library Live - Orange County: A Literary Field Guide tonight at 7 p.m.

Local literary stars, Andrew Tonkovich and Lisa Alvarez, will participate in a panel discussion with other contributors to Orange County: A Literary Field Guide (including award-winning poet Stephanie Brown and acclaimed author Victoria Patterson).  Gustavo Arellano, OC Weekly Editor and Ask A Mexican Columnist, will moderate the panel.  

There is no charge to attend, but seating is limited so be sure to reserve your spot by contacting 949.548.2411 or

Library Live continues on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. with William Finnegan

William Finnegan is an award-winning reporter, a staff writer at The New Yorker, and the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book Barbarian Days, a memoir about his lifelong passion for surfing.  Barbarian Days is more than just a memoir of great waves discovered and ridden. It is a story of family, friendships, love, coming-of-age, and the gradual mastering of an exacting, little-understood art, told with such lyricism and insight that even non-surfers will be swept along for the ride. Finnegan has reported extensively on conflict and culture in many different parts of the world, including Africa, Mexico, Central America, South America, Eastern Europe, the Persian Gulf, and the United States. Whether speaking about his experiences as a political journalist or his bestselling memoir, Finnegan gives audiences a fresh understanding of the world around us.

Friends Meeting Room, Central Library 1000 Avocado Avenue, Newport Beach
