In conversation with Jesse Kornbluth
Belvedere and Tiburon are located just across the Bay from San Francisco, but they seem to exist in another time. In Growing Up Belvedere-Tiburon, Paige Peterson’s memories of her magical childhood and the archival photographs that trace the history of these small, lovingly protected communities combine to transport readers to a real-life Brigadoon.
