How To Write College Essays at Morgan Hill Library

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Morgan Hill Library

Many great students write average (even bad!) college essays —essays about “life lesson learned from football” or “how my trip to Europe broadened my cultural horizons.” Better tales are there for the writing. This workshop will show you what admissions officers really look for in great college essays, and offers suggestions for finding and sharing your best stories. We’ll even share the five most over-used topics you must avoid and give you tips on how to finish your essay long before application deadlines.

Marisela Gomez worked at Santa Clara University for 12 years in the Admission Office and has read thousands of applications from freshman, international and transfer applicants. Now a college counselor, she also knows that every student needs to create a smart and balanced college list to help find the right colleges for them.

This is open to high school (all grades) and community college students.

2pm Author Hans Berger Talk and Book Signing at Gilroy Library

Gilroy Library
A Bridge To Cross - 
The True Story of One Family's Flight from The Nazis

An incredible true story: 
In the spring of 1944, Hitler’s storm troops and allied forces attacked Germany and forced his radical 
policies on the citizens. Heidelberg was not exempt. The once peaceful city, became a place of tyranny, murder and fear.  My sisters and I, became a target of the ruthless Gestapo. While our father kept up the facade of compliance, our mother had no choice but to take her four children and flee in the dark of night. As we arrived in former East Prussia, we were nearly crushed by the iron jaw of the Russian bear. Trapped behind enemy lines for more than a year, we felt the powerful paw bearing down on us from the far reaches of the Soviet Empire

Hans Berger immigrated from Bavaria Germany in 1957.  He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and joined the U.S. Navy stationed at Pearl Harbor.  Later in his life, he became a law enforcement instructor after graduating from the  University of Indiana with a degree in toxicology. He has been retired for five years and keeps busy by writing, doing artwork,  and volunteering at a local hospital. He and his wife live in Fresno, California.
