TELL ME - Stories of Migration to Glendale: Breaking Bread 

GLENDALE—Join us for   Breaking Bread, a storytelling event that will bring community members together to share global breads and watch video stories of local community members. The event is on Friday, December 6, 2019 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Glendale Central Library Auditorium, located at 222 East Harvard Street, Glendale CA 91205.

Refreshments will be available to all attendees and admission is free. Three hours of free parking is available in the parking structure at the Northeast corner of Harvard Street and Artsakh Avenue. Please bring in your parking tickets for validation.

Breaking Bread is presented in conjunction with Tell Me - Stories of Migration to Glendale, a California Humanities-For-All Project grant that allowed the Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department to chronicle stories of migrants, recent migrants, and second- and third-generation immigrants that make up our community. Stories of family origin and migration are deeply personal and relate to the notion of “breaking bread” during family celebrations and get-togethers where stories and memories are shared. 

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.orgfor more information, or contact Lora Martinolich by phone at 818-548-3749 or email lmartinolich@glendaleca.gov
