Event Details

The rise, fall, and recent resurrection of France’s Champagne region is examined in this intriguing history of the region.  

Within the last millennium France’s Champagne region has ascended two stunning pinnacles of fame and fortune with a long, deep gorge between them.

Widmer-Stewart traces the history and culture of its highly varied past to its remarkable present. More than 100 color photographs provide a visual perspective, especially to events and occurrences tied with specific locales.

The author also looks at two regional parks in today’s Champagne region and the important role they play in the look, feel and function of the area.

If you are traveling to France any time soon, this book is a must for preparation and pleasure.

Wine tasting featuring Terra Savia family winery.

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
