Happy Birthday, Joan Didion!(

Join us Tuesday, December 5, 2023 at 6:30 pm, in the Art Court and Performing Arts Center, for a celebration of Joan Didion on her birthday!

Presented by the Sacramento Historical Society (SHS) in partnership with Sacramento City College, the event will be an acknowledgment of her legacy, the recent $500,000 gift from her family and SHS to support SCC programs, and the renaming of the college’s library to the Joan Didion Learning Resources Center.

As a Sacramento native who studied at SCC, it will be fitting to honor her at the college with an evening of food and drink, conversation, and a full program.

Admission is free for all Los Rios students and employees. Email your full name and W number or a photo of your employee ID to Toni Tinker at

Tickets are also available for purchase.
