Stop by the Oakland Museum to meet Dick Evans, author of The Mission. He will share stories of his three-year project documenting the arts and culture of the Mission District in San Francisco. This colorful book will be available for sale and signing at the event.

Dick Evans became interested in photography as a graduate student at Stanford University and continued his practice throughout a forty-seven-year career in the global metals industry that took him all over the world. San Francisco always remained home base, though, and he now lives in the city with his wife, Gretchen. Evans is the author of the photography book San Francisco and the Bay Area: The Haight- Ashbury Edition (InTransit Images and The Booksmith, 2011), as well as The Mission (Heyday) and San Francisco's Chinatown (Heyday).
