Author James Smith will speak and show photos from his latest book about our vanished oceanside amusement park, San Francisco's Playland at the Beach: The Golden Years. This new book is the definitive illustrated history of the much-loved park from 1940 until its closing in 1972. Copies will be available for purchase and autographing.


This is a Wise Up! program for learning and living well at any age.
