Legendary Locals of Oakland

Legendary Locals of Oakland is a book from Arcadia Publishing, written by Gene Anderson. It features some of the amazing people, historic and contemporary, who have helped make Oakland the great city it is.

“@LibbySchaaf, this book should be issued to every OUSD student.”

You can buy it at Laurel Book Store downtown, Walden Pond Books on Grand Ave., Annie’s Hallmark in Montclair Village, or order it from Arcadia.
