JUNE 25 SPEAKER PROGRAM: Finding the Hidden Gems in the San Fernando Valley

June 2, 2015

San Fernando Valley native and author Bronwyn Ralph will present excerpts from her travel guidebook “Off the Beaten Path, SFV” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 25 at the Andres Pico Adobe. Bronwyn enjoyed exploring the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s-90s with her family and wanted to share these hidden gems with others. “This is the reason I wrote my travel book, Off the Beaten Path: A Guide to Exploring the Cultural Landmarks, Historic Monuments and Other Points of Interests in the San Fernando Valley,” she says.

Bronwyn is a graduate of our Lady of Corvallis High School, received her undergraduate degree at Mt. St. Mary's College and earned her Masters degree at CSUN. She currently works for the California State Department of Rehabilitation and resides in Encino with her husband, children and father. “I love the San Fernando Valley and I am proud to call this place my home,” she adds. Refreshments will be served and there will be a free prize drawing after the meeting. This is free to the public although donations are gratefully accepted.
