    Time Tested Books is very excited to present a reading and signing with Sacramento historian Bill Burg, author of Sacramento's K Street: Where Our City Was Born. From its founding, K Street has mirrored the entrepreneurial development of Sacramento. Initially the storefront for gold seekers trampling a path between the Sacramento River and Sutter’s Fort, K Street soon became the hub of California’s first stagecoach, railroad, and riverboat networks. Over the years K Street boasted saloons and vaudeville houses, the neon buzz of jazz clubs and movie theatres, as well as the finest hotels and department stores. For the postwar generation, K Street was synonymous with Christmas shopping and teenage cruising. From the Golden Eagle and Buddy Baer’s to Weinstock’s and the Alhambra Theatre, join Bill Burg as he chronicles the legacy of Sacramento’s K Street--once a boulevard of aspirations and bustling commerce, and now home to a spirit of renewal.
