Local author to speak


Local author Joel L.A. Peterson will discuss his book “Dreams of my Mothers, A Story of Love Transcendent” at 12:20 p.m. on Oct. 15 in Glendale Community College’s student center.

“Dreams of My Mothers” is based on a true story, covering a span of more than 40 years, but addresses contemporary societal issues.

Peterson introduces readers to a young, destitute peasant woman in the 1960s who is struggling to raise her illegitimate infant, the son of an American GI, in an under-developed South Korea, barely recovering from civil war.

Peterson’s birth mother placed him for international adoption. He was adopted at the age of 7 and placed with an American family, who already had four biological children, in rural Minnesota.

Peterson, a National Merit Scholar, attended college on a full Navy ROTC scholarship and served seven years as a U.S. Navy officer.

He is a La Cañada Flintridge resident who is currently an administrator at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont.

The event is free and open to the public.
