Escape to the Huntington Library, Art Collection and Botanical Gardens in San Marino on Saturday for a combination of intellect, humor and natural beauty.
The very popular Huntington Women's Studies Seminars is presenting its final event of the year with a very special writers panel. The topic is "Telling Our Stories: Life Into Art," featuring Sandra Tsing Loh, Michelle Serros and Mary Trunk. The seminar is free and no reservations are required. Register from 9:30 to 10 a.m.; the program runs from 10 a.m. to noon.
Seminar attendees are admitted for free to the museum, so make it a full day; bring a sack lunch or buy a sandwich lunch ticket at registration (limited supply). If you want to make your visit extra-special, make a reservation for the Tea Room (see website for prices).
