November brings CBI Lee “Hacksaw” Hamilton, one of America’s top sports-talk show hosts. He has been named Talk Show Host of the Year seven times by the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Association. He has spent his last 26-years doing Sports-Talk Radio in San Diego, and was the first talk show host hired at the legendary 77,000-watt XTRA-Sports-690, and now at 50,000-watt Mighty 1090, hosts the San Diego Padres pre-postgame talk shows.
This program is open to the entire San Diego community, both men and women. Temple or Men’s Club Membership is not a requirement to attend.
With his signature wit and keen observational eye for everyday life, bestselling author and New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik chronicles his early days in the tumultuous 1980s–where a life begun in the smallest apartment in Manhattan opened the gate to professional misadventures in the worlds of high fashion, art and public speaking. Jumping forward twenty years, Gopnik also tells the story of raising two children in the utterly different New York of the aughts and builds a moving portrait where imaginary friends, misunderstood texts and even steam bath sexuality all manage to confound and shape his understanding. This one-man show of stories from his 30 years as a husband, father, and writer is based on material developed with public radio’s The Moth and most recently played for a sold-out run at NYC’s Public Theater. A book signing will follow.
In January 2020, the first-ever Holocaust exhibit will open at the Chula Vista Heritage Museum’s space located in the Civic Center Branch Library at 365 F Street. RUTH: Remember Us The Holocaust will feature several Holocaust survivors that discovered the South Bay of San Diego as their place of work, worship and home. It will also bring to light this dark time in history, by sharing the sacredness of humanity.
The exhibit was a dream of Ruth Sax, a Holocaust survivor, South Bay resident, advocate and inspirational speaker. Ruth was in the library planning what the exhibit would look like before she passed on December 29, 2018.
Brunch with Mayor Mary Casillas Salas and several Holocaust Survivors will be the opening event on Sunday, January 12, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at the Civic Center Branch Library. Brunch will be kosher catered by Chabad of Chula Vista and proceeds will benefit the South Bay Historical Society.
