Local authors introduced at museum
August 19, 2023
It is Book of the Month Day at Tehachapi Museum, and books written by Gloria Gossard will be featured on Saturday, Sept. 2, from noon until 4 p.m. Gossard lived in Tehachapi from 1991 until her death in 2010. She was fascinated with the history of the area and wrote books about Bear Valley Springs, Brite Valley and Cummings Valley.
Books written by Gossard will be available for purchase at half price. Judy Reynolds, Museum Director, who worked with Gossard on several of her books, will be available to discuss the writings.
Book of the Month Day was established during this 50th anniversary year of the founding of Tehachapi Heritage League. It will be held the first Saturday of each month. Directors want to acquaint the community with local authors whose work is available for purchase at the Museum’s gift shop.
Last month Pat Gracey was the featured author. People enjoyed stopping by, listening to her memories of Tehachapi and sharing their own experiences. Both Gracey and Gossard were regular contributors to The Loop newspaper.
The Tehachapi Museum, 310 S. Green St., is open both Saturday and Sunday from noon until 4 p.m.
