Documentary screening of "Tres Bien: The Big Heart of Big Kitchen." Meet Judy Forman, who, in 1980 bought The Big Kitchen- a diner in the Golden Hilll area of South Park, San Diego.

Judy, a vibrant personality, was a trained social worker and The Big Kitchen quickly turned into a community sanctuary for social justice and activism, as well as a mecca for artists, locals, politicians, feminists, eccentrics and the gay community.

This event is part of the San Diego County Library’s programming for this year’s One Book, One San Diego.The 2019 selections include “The Great Believers” by Rebecca Makkai, “The Crossover” by Kwame Alexander for young adults, "Dreamers" by Yuyi Morales for kids, and “Éramos unos niños” by Patti Smith for Spanish-language readers.

“The Great Believers” is a historical novel about the terrors and tragedies of the AIDS epidemic and its repercussions, through a story about friendship and redemption in the face of tragedy and loss, set in 1980s Chicago and contemporary Paris.

It won the Stonewall Book Award, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and was optioned by Amy Poehler for television.
