Vroman’s Bookstore presents Barney Frank discussing and signing Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Mar

South Pasadena Public Library Community Room

1115 El Centro Street, SOUTH PASADENA, CA 91030

12:00pm to 3:00pm

Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage is one man’s account of the country’s transformation and the tale of a truly momentous career. Many Americans recall Frank’s lacerating wit, whether it was directed at the Clinton impeachment (“What did the president touch, and when did he touch it?”) or the pro-life movement (some people believe “life begins at conception and ends at birth”). But his private and public lives are less well-known. For more than four decades, he was at the center of the struggle for personal freedom and economic fairness. From the battle over AIDS funding in the 1980s to the debates over “big government” during the Clinton years to the 2008 financial crisis, Barney Frank played a key role.
In this feisty and often moving memoir, Frank candidly discusses the satisfactions, fears, and grudges that come with elected office. He recalls the emotional toll of living in the closet and how his public crusade against homophobia conflicted with his private accommodation of it. He discusses his painful quarrels with allies; his friendships with public figures, from Tip O’Neill to Sonny Bono; and how he found love with his husband, Jim Ready, becoming the first sitting member of Congress to enter a same-sex marriage.
Event location: South Pasadena Library’s community room located at 1115 El Centro St.

Corktown 57

Odyssey Theater

2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, 90025

8:00pm

An Irish-American family is ripped apart by divided loyalties in this powerful new drama. Emotions run high and battle lines are drawn when family and political allegiances collide in the Philadelphia community known as Corktown, a hotbed of pro-Irish activity that reached its climax in the late 1950s a time when Irish Republican Army splinter groups had begun to advocate violence against civilian targets as a strategy to drive Britain out of Ireland The play is a fiction, but its inspired by memories of my family, says playwright Fazakerley, who was motivated by a shoebox of old photographs he discovered after his father died including a 1948 photo of his grandfather holding him as a baby. That photo is now the poster for this production. My grandfather was an unrepentant Irish Republican who wouldnt give up the fight, the playwright continues. In his last days, he came to live with us, and I became his caretaker. He would regale me with stories of the family coming to America. Though I knew he was highly political, I never realized what that meant until I began to question family elders, who would entertain me with stories of Grandpop.
