Clarence Robert "Bob" Tower, a previously published author and a member of the Santa Clara Unified School District Hall of Fame, is the lead author of a new book in the 'Legendary Locals' series of Arcadia Publishing's popular photo history books. Bob will present a PowerPoint show highlighting his favorite photos and stories from the book, Legendary Locals of Santa Clara by Clarence Robert Tower and Ken Lichtenstein. The book includes chapters on champion-caliber Santa Clara athletes, famous Santa Clarans who have made their mark on the world, Santa Clara government officials and family business owners, and extraordinary 'ordinary Santa Clarans' who have greatly contributed to our community.
The program is sponsored by the Santa Clara City Library. The lecture is free and open to the public. The book will be for sale and the author will sign books following the presentation.
