Book Description: From the educational space of UC Berkeley to a one-room library in Silverado Canyon, this tour of thirty-two California libraries explores the sense of space and unique atmosphere a structure can provide. Dividing California into eight distinct regions including the northern California coast, the San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles County, and San Diego County, the work looks at a sampling of libraries from each area, discussing the surroundings, facilities and physical presentation of each building. Chosen libraries reflect the communities they serve as well as their particular missions. Entries include contact information for the selected library, a website address, and information regarding its size, circulation and the extent of its collection. Photographs of the libraries are also included.

Book Description: The punk rock scene of the 1970s and ’80s in Southern California is widely acknowledged as one of the most vibrant, creative periods in all of rock and roll history. And while many books have covered the artists who contributed to the music of that era, none have exclusively focused on the vitality and influence of the women who played such a crucial role in this incredibly dynamic and instrumental movement. We Were Going to Change the World captures the stories of women who were active in the SoCal punk rock scene during this historic time, adding an important voice to its cultural and musical record. Through exclusive interviews with musicians, journalists, photographers, and fans, Stacy Russo has captured the essence of why these women were drawn to punk rock, what they witnessed, and how their involvement in this empowering scene ended up influencing the rest of their lives. From such hugely influential musicians and performers as Exene Cervenka, Alice Bag, Kira, Phranc, Johanna Went, Teresa Covarrubias, and Jennifer Precious Finch, to such highly regarded journalists, DJs, and photographers as Ann Summa, Jenny Lens, Kristine McKenna, Pleasant Gehman, and Stella, to the fans and scenesters who supported the bands and added so much color and energy to the scene, We Were Going to Change the World is an important oral history of the crucial contributions women injected into the Southern California punk rock scene of the 1970s and ’80s. Empowering, touching, and informative, Stacy Russo’s collection of interviews adds a whole new dimension to the literature of both punk rock and women’s studies.

Book Description: The punk rock scene of the 1970s and '80s in Southern California is widely acknowledged as one of the most vibrant, creative periods in all of rock and roll history. And while several excellent books have done a commendable job of covering and examining the artists who contributed to the music of that era, none have exclusively focused on the vitality and influence of the women who played such a crucial role in this incredibly dynamic and instrumental movement. We Were Going to Change the World captures the stories of women who were active in the SoCal punk rock scene during this historic time, adding an important voice to its cultural and musical record. Through exclusive interviews with musicians, journalists, photographers, and fans, Stacy Russo has captured the essence of why these women were drawn to punk rock, what they witnessed, and how their involvement in this empowering scene ended up influencing the rest of their lives. Whether it's Kira, bass player for the seminal punk rock band Black Flag, discussing the first time she saw a punk rock concert--it was the Germs at the Whisky--or Alison Braun, photographer and writer forFlipside andMaximum Rocknroll, reflecting on the articles and columns she wrote for those groundbreaking publications, or Cecily Desmond revealing how, as a fan, the punk rock scene offered her a place where she finally felt like she belonged, allowing her to shed her own identification as an outcast,We Were Going to Change the World gives voice to dozens of women whose lives were dramatically changed forever by a scene that has generally been portrayed in books and movies from a predominantly male point of view. From such hugely influential musicians and performers as Exene, Alice Bag, Phranc, Johanna Went, Teresa Covarrubias, and Jennifer Precious Finch, to such highly regarded journalists, DJs, and photographers as Ann Summa, Kristine McKenna, Pleasant Gehman, and Stella, to the fans and scenesters who supported the bands and added so much color and energy to the scene,We Were Going to Change the World is an important oral history of the crucial contributions women injected into the Southern California punk rock scene of the 1970s and '80s.
