"Coming Home Long Beach" Author Event Presented by the Long Beach Public Library Foundation

As part of National Library Month, join us for our next author event.  On Thursday, April 17, at 6 PM in the Main Library auditorium the Foundation presents a “Coming Home Long Beach” event with former U.S. Army Captain and New York Times best-selling author Luis Carlos Montalván with his dog Tuesday.  Mr. Montalván discusses his life-changing experience in his heartwarming book Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him.  The Main Library is located at 101 Pacific Avenue at Ocean Boulevard in Long Beach.
