San Diego Pioneer Poetry Slam!

Take a trip back in time to experience San Diego in the early 1900s, through the eyes of a pioneer woman.  “The Zig-Zag Trail” is a collection of poetry written by Lorena Catherine Harden that traces her journey from a child growing up on the prairie to San Diego, where she became an outspoken proponent of justice and human rights. The story is told in poetry with vintage photography, and presented by her great-granddaughter, Claire Condra.

Do these hills look familiar?  Can you guess the location of this San Diego scene?  You'll have to come to our February assembly to find out!
