Short Takes Short Takes (June 02, 2004)

Monty of Menlo

Mike Montgomery, the new head coach of the Golden State Warriors, will keep his home in Menlo Park but also have a place close to Oakland, he told the Associated Press. "This is an easy transition in so many ways," said Montgomery, who left Stanford after 18 years as head coach.

Stanford won its first 26 games this season and finished the regular season ranked No. 1 with a 29-1 mark. He has a career record of 547-244, including eight seasons at Montana.

"I guess it never really hit me until they just announced it that I'm the new head coach of the Golden State Warriors," Montgomery said May 21 when he was formally introduced with his wife and daughter.

Author event covers an expat's life in China

The disparate worlds of Shanghai in the 1930s and 1940s and Los Angeles in the 1940s and 1950s take shape in the pages of the novel "The Distant Land of My Father." On Tuesday, June 8, author Bo Caldwell will speak at the Menlo Park Library on her book.

Ms. Caldwell's first novel is based on the life of her American uncle, who grew up in a Nazarene mission in China. The South Bay resident is a graduate of Stanford University, where she majored in English with an emphasis in creative writing, event organizers said.

Ms. Caldwell's talk begins at 7 p.m. in the lower-level meeting room at the library, which is located at 800 Alma St. Refreshments will be served, and the author will sign books after her talk. The event is free. For more information, call Lauren John at 533-4088.
