In conjunction with the Class of 1965’s 50th reunion, John Taibi will be giving a presentation on his newest book ‘Pioneers and Gazinta’. This autobiographical tale is the story of growing up in Brentwood during the ’50s and ’60s and is sure to bring back many fond memories. Please join us at 4:00 in the Brentwood Library auditorium for this special meeting!
