Happy Birthday, Gertrude. Even if you didn’t love Oakland, Oakland still loves you. The city doesn’t hold grudges, and doesn’t need anyone’s approval to feel good about itself. So we celebrate one who snubbed Oak-town. Too bad, you woulda felt right at home in today’s East Bay.
You may not be widely seen, nor read, but because of you so many of our most beloved painters and writers were. So, thanks, Gertrude!
I’ll guide you to her final resting place on my VoiceMap tours of the Père Lachaise cemetery, and recite stories from her life.
See funny pictures and text from our picnic together in The Chairfather book.
The passed have never been more alive!
Book a lunch date with the fallen famous NOW!
Really, it doesn’t matter. Their agendas are quite open.
