The La Cañada Flintridge One City One Book committee held its 7th annual author event on Sunday, the rainy weather not being enough to deter readers and fans of this year's selected book: Alan Brennert's "Honolulu."
The event took place at the La Cañada Unified School District board room where Mark Salzman, whose book, "The Soloist, " was the committee's featured work last year, sat down with Brennert for an interview. The pair then took turns taking questions from the audience.
Each year, the committee members select one book as their collective favorite. An event is then held to discuss the book with the general public.
"I'm very honored, especially when I look back and see the previous selections," said Brennert. "I'm rubbing shoulders not just with Mark Salzman, but John Steinbeck and Geraldine Brooks. So I'm very, very flattered that the selection committee thought that 'Honolulu' belonged in their company."
