Program Description

Event Details

Stop by the library lobby to celebrate this year’s One Book, One Community selection and pick up a complimentary copy of The Bohemians by Jasmin Darznik. Enjoy a treat and register for One Book programs.  One copy per household while supplies last.

The Bohemians captures a glittering and gritty 1920s San Francisco through the lens of a young  Dorothea Lange, just starting on her path to becoming part of San Francisco’s art scene and American photography history.

A vivid and absorbing portrait of the past, it is also eerily resonant with contemporary themes, as anti-immigration sentiment, corrupt politicians, and a devastating pandemic bring tumult to the city. As Dorothea sheds her innocence, her purpose is awakened and she grows into the artist who would create pictures — like her iconic Depression-era photograph, Migrant Mother — that would break the hearts and open the eyes of a nation.
