Author Event with Dave Delgardo-March 25th

March 25, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The Cloverdale Arts Alliance is pleased to announce an Author Event on March 25 at 6:00pm featuring Dave Delgardo. Dave, a resident of Clover Springs in Cloverdale will read from Eden, Indeed: Tales Truths and Fabrications of a Small Town Boy.

Beginning with his father’s decision to uproot his post-war family from the burgeoning Los Angeles Basin to rural Northern California, Dave tells stories of growing up in small town Chico. Living on five acres fronted by a creek, Dave and his pals were fairly well insulated from the events of what became a generation’s defining decade. Politics, riots, and Vietnam took a backseat to tree forts and tire swings, bicycle and canoe outings, bonfires on starry nights and a young love crush or two. The tumult of the 1960s was not far away, but, perhaps, just far enough.

Readers have commented:
“Wish our kids today could grow up in that kind of world… free to be a kid, explore the outdoors…”
“Each story brought several emotions; the most often tears, laughter, memories of loved ones, the joy of the simple pleasures of life…”
“Sounded a lot like my rural upbringing and how I’m always surprised I lived through those years…”

Eden, Indeed: Tales Truths and Fabrications of a Small Town Boy recalls the gentle innocence of a young life in a special place and reminds us that growing up is a life-long journey.

Dave Delgardo is a retired public educator who served in classroom and leadership positions throughout the north state. Having explored California and the West, always looking for his next Eden, he admits, “Perhaps it is right here in Cloverdale.”

This event is free to the public and will take place at the Cloverdale Arts Alliance Gallery, located at 204 N. Cloverdale Blvd, starting at 6:00pm
