Author Talk: Congresswoman Jackie Speier

On December 3, 2018, Congresswoman Jackie Speier read from her new book,  Undaunted:  Surviving Jonestown, Summoning Courage, and Fighting Back at the Colma Community Center. Jackie began her presentation noting the immense value of public libraries, “they have become the center of our community and are treasures for our community”.

 

Jackie read excerpts from the book, which she wrote to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Jonestown Massacre and the George Moscone murder. This tragedy “guided her to the life she was meant to live - a life of public service”.  It convinced her how important it was to stand up again, and that she had a purpose.  

 

Jackie then took questions from the audience, and ended the evening signing books for a large group of attendees and supporters.
