12/03/14 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bilingual Book Discussion Group Meets at Escondido Public Library 

12/03/14 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Paul Crouthamel, 760-839-4814

Escondido, CA - Rincón Literario (The Literary Corner), Escondido Public Library’s Bilingual Book Discussion Group, will meet on Saturday, January 31, 2015, from 3:30 – 4:45 p.m. in the Library’s Turrentine Room. Yo antes de ti/Me Before You, by JoJo Moyes, is the selected book for January. Participants discuss books bilingually, in English and Spanish, enabling them to enjoy great literature in either language. Rincón Literario also provides an opportunity to improve either English or Spanish language skills. 

Yo antes de ti/Me Before You is a best-selling novel, with wide critical acclaim. Moyes introduces Will Traynor, a formerly high-flying, thrill-seeking executive now confined to a wheelchair as a quadriplegic. Louisa Clark, a 26-year-old working-class girl, is hired by Will’s mother to boost his morale. After the accident, the only power Will believes he has is the power to end his life. Louisa has never fully lived—before meeting Will her plans didn’t extend beyond their tiny English town. In Lou, he discovers an unexpected outlet for his thwarted energies—teaching her how to exert her own autonomy. Deciding that the only chance she has of getting Will to take an interest in his own future is to make him take an interest in hers, Louisa devises character-building adventures they can undertake together for her benefit, hoping it will give him a reason to live. All signs point to romance and a happy ending for the pair, but Moyes has something more heartbreakingly truthful in mind; sometimes love isn’t enough.  

Rincón Literario meets regularly on the last Saturday of the month to explore literature published in English and Spanish. In February, readers will discuss Has visto a Maria? / Have You Seen Marie? by Sandra Cisneros.

Rincón Literario is made possible by generous support from Friends of the Escondido Public Library. This program is free and open to the public. For more information about future Rincón Literario selections and other Library programs, visit the Library’s website at library.escondido.org or call Paul Crouthamel, Adult Services Librarian, at 760-839-4814.

Correction Regarding Trout Derby 

11/20/14 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Dan Hippert, 760-839-4240

 

It was previously reported that parents helping their children fish at the Escondido Hidden Valley Kiwanis Kiddie Pond would be required to purchase a daily fishing permit. This information is incorrect. Parents not fishing or participating in the Trout Derby are not required to purchase a daily permit while their children fish at the Kiddie Pond.

 

The 36th Annual Lake Dixon Trout Derby will begin on Friday, December 5, 2014 and run through Sunday, December 7, 2014.  Large trout and great fishing have been the hallmark of this annual event. The Grand Prize winning Rainbow Trout at 19 of the past 25 derbies weighed in over 8 pounds. To enter, each angler must purchase a daily permit normally required to fish the lake ($7.00 adults, $5.00 for kids under 16 and seniors over 60). There is no additional charge to enter the derby, but the $5 vehicle entry fee into the park will be charged each day of the derby. Since Lake Dixon now has an Aquaculture permit, a California Fishing License is no longer required. Fish must be weighed in during derby hours, 6:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., on the day they are caught. Since contestants can win only one prize, chances of winning are good. To make this three day event competitive for the novice as well as the skilled angler, there are a variety of ways to win. Prizes will be awarded for the following five categories: the largest trout of the derby, the largest in each age category (senior, adult, and youth), the first and second largest trout of each day, the smallest trout of the derby, and for the first 15 trout brought in that have a plastic clip on their dorsal fin. In the event of a tie, the winning fish will be determined by the first fish weighed in.

 

For further information, contact the Lake Dixon Ranger staff at 760-839-4680.
