Hey kids! Get ready for a blast from the past! Tuesday, May 13, 6 p.m. “Duck, Cover, and Scramble: Sacramento, the 1950s and the Cold War” at the Central Sacramento Public Library Galleria!
Fallout shelters, the specter of Sputnik, and learning to embrace the atom are just a few of the topics to be discussed by Gretchen Steinberg of SacMod (Sacramento Modern) and James Scott of Sacramento Public Library.

Nice turnout of over 70 people yesterday! We hope those of you who joined SacMod (Sacramento Modern) for our “Concrete Thinking” bike tour in collaboration with Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates had a great time *AND* gained a stronger understanding of and appreciation for the buildings and art that we highlighted. If you missed it, don’t worry! You can still enjoy our expanded walking tour later this year.
