San Gabriel Valley roundup: Red Hen Press settles into Pasadena, Program could put more books into the hands of preschoolers

Good morning, readers. Today is Thursday, August 16. Today's roundup is very lit-heavy and I'm OK with that.

Red Hen Press recently moved from the Valley to Pasadena, partially because the latter is home to more artists and creatives.

When asked about the publishing house's new location, managing editor Kate Gale said "We really wanted to move to a place that celebrates arts and culture." L.A. Magazine

Preschoolers in the SGV could soon see more books with a new grant program. The nonprofit Los Angeles Universal Preschool will donate a book for each person that registers on the Soar with Reading Website. The only catch? You have to list your favorite children's book. Pasadena Star-News

Pasadena-born Julia Child would have been 100 years old on Aug. 15 and food blogs, writers and even Google paid tribute to the eccentric cook. One interesting piece on the Web comes from the New Yorker, who examines how Julia learned to eat.

What's going on tonight?

If you're someone who still values the paper and pen — er, inkwell in this case —  Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena is holding a calligraphy workshop709 E. Colorado Blvd. Suite 120. 6:30 p.m. $45 fee.
