Nicole Meldahl (and maybe sometimes David Gallagher) in conversation with local historians, artists, long-time west side residents, and other surprise guests, chatting about a variety of historical subjects. Audience members are encouraged to participate via chat and, of course, bring their beverage of choice.

This week we sit down with John Martini, a native San Franciscan and a life-long researcher into the history of California and the American West. John worked as a National Park Ranger for more than twenty-five years at parks around the country including Golden Gate Recreation Area, USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor and Teddy Roosevelt’s country estate at Sagamore Hill in New York. He appears regularly on The History Channel, A&E Network, The Discovery Channel and PBS specials. Now retired, he continues to volunteer for the National Park Service, notably on Alcatraz Island and at Fort Cronkite in Marin County. Who knows where the evening will take us!

Sponsored by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development via the Invest in Neighborhoods Program courtesy of District 1 Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, this event is free (but donations are appreciated) and pre-registration is required. A Zoom link will be emailed to you after registration. This event has passed.
