Brown Bag Speakers Forum - Mara Melandry: Our Paradise Book Talk

Our Paradise: Berkeley's Fabulous Family Camps, Cazadero, Tuolumne, Echo Lake

Join us for an enlightening book talk about the history of the three Berkeley family camps from their establishment in the 1920s to present times: their successes, their ups-and-downs and their sometimes wacky traditions.

Mara Melandry was born and raised on the Peninsula. She attended UC Berkeley and the London School of Economics, followed by three years of teaching in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She then worked for the CA Department of Transportation where she was the Environmental Manager for the new Bay Bridge. Now retired, she enjoys volunteering with the UC Botanical Garden and the Friends of the Berkeley Public Library. She and her photographer husband have lived in Berkeley since 1977.
