Please join local author, archivist, and historian Lynn Downey as she speaks about her new book Arequipa Sanatorium: Life in California's Lung Resort for Women. Based on sanatorium records that Downey helped to preserve and interviews she conducted with former patients and others associated with Arequipa which was located in Fairfax,  California. Downey's book tells a vivid story of the sanatorium and its cures that physicians Philip King Brown and Cabot Brown and their talented team of Progressive women made available to hundreds of working-class patients beginning in 1911.  Lynn Downey’s grandmother was a patient at the sanatorium in the 1920s. The author will be available to sign books. This event is hosted by the Sonoma County History & Genealogy Library.
