Silicon Valley Reads Author Event
This year's Silicon Valley Reads campaign is focused on the challenges and rewards of exploring family history and self-identity – with three books about prominent individuals whose lives were changed by unexpected discoveries about their own families.

De Anza will host a signature event on Feb. 27, with Mercury News columnist Sal Pizarro leading an onstage conversation with Bill Griffeth and Paula Williams Madison, two of this year's featured authors.

Admission is free, with open seating. The event is cosponsored by De Anza College and the Commonwealth Club Silicon Valley.

Date: Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019
Time: 7:30 p.m. (doors will open at 6:45 p.m.)
Location: Visual & Performing Arts Center
Free parking: Lot A starting at 5 p.m.

The public is also invited to a special viewing of "Ancestral Journeys," a related special exhibit at the Euphrat Museum of Art, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Feb. 27 and during the book-signing after the event.
