Gennawey’s comprehensive and entertaining book nurtured, and grew into a source of joy and inspiration for generations of visitors, and it is layered with important context, including key personalities, and contemporary historical and cultural issues. “A trip to Disneyland would become a rite of passage for many Americans,” writes Gennawey, and he describes how the theme park’s success is rooted in its ability to constantly reinvent itself while staying true to Walt Disney’s founding principles.A senior associate at the Pasadena urban planning firm of Katherine Padilla & Associates, Sam Gennawey is the author of Walt and the Promise of Progress City (2011), a columnist of the popular MiceChat Web Site, and a featured speaker on them park history and design at many venues including the Walt Disney Family Museum, the American Planning Association, the California Preservation Foundation, and the California League of Cities. The discussion will be moderated by Allendale Branch Librarian Veronica Fuentes. Books will be available for purchase for $19.00 per copy.The Allendale Branch Library is located at 1130 S. Marengo Avenue, in Pasadena.For more information, contact (626) 744-7260 or visit pasadenapubliclibrary.net.
