Saturday: Local author at library


Alexander Kugushev of Menlo Park will discuss his book, "Resilient America: An immigrant examines our nation's adaptive continuity," at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 3, in the downstairs meeting room of the Menlo Park Public Library, 800 Alma St. in Menlo Park.

A journalist by trade and a publisher by profession, Mr. Kugushev views the American experience as an outsider, although he has spent nearly 50 years in this country. Born in France to Russian parents, he lived in Europe through World War II, which he describes as the defining experience of his life. He and his mother immigrated to Argentina after the war and he arrived in the United States in 1960.

The program is presented by the Friends of the Menlo Park Library. Free van service is available for Menlo Park seniors and those with disabilities. To schedule transportation, call 330-2512.
