A reading and discussion group for residents, beginning next month at the Placentia Library, will focus on the California Gold Rush era.

The group will explore selected passages from "Gold Rush: A Literary Exploration," a new anthology containing more than 100 selections.

Wendy Elliott, an instructor at Cal State Fullerton, will lead the four free discussion sessions. The Tuesday sessions will take place at the library, 411 E. Chapman Ave., at 7 p.m. on Feb. 10, March 3 and 24, and April 14.

The group is being funded by the California Council for the Humanities.

In addition, group members will be encouraged to help plan city activities, including the 75th anniversary of Placentia in 2001.

Information and reservations: Suad Ammar, principal librarian, (714) 528-1906, ext. 207.
