Hooked on Books meets April 6

April Book: The Guest Book  by Sarah Blake

Everyone remembers their first love, but sometimes it’s the second love that lasts… Fleeing her picture-perfect life among the privileged set and the wreckage of a failed marriage, Lily Parkins moves to the only place that still holds happy memories: her grandmother’s farmhouse, now a converted B&B on the enchanting Madrona Island.

May Book:  Isaacs Storm by Erik Larson

At the dawn of the twentieth century, a great confidence suffused America. Isaac Cline was one of the era’s new men, a scientist who believed he knew all there was to know about the motion of clouds and the behavior of storms. The idea that a hurricane could damage the city of Galveston, Texas, where he was based, was to him preposterous, “an absurd delusion.” It was 1900, a year when America felt bigger and stronger than ever before. Nothing in nature could hobble the gleaming city of Galveston, then a magical place that seemed destined to become the New York of the Gulf.

How to Get a Covid Vaccination Appointment Through Contra Costa County

First Dose Appointments
If you are age 65 or older or an essential worker (in teaching, food, agriculture, or emergency services) and have not yet been vaccinated, you can access state and federal vaccination sites for an appointment by going to:

the MyTurn website: http://myturn.CA.gov
Or phoning: 1-833-422-4255

OptumServe
One of the local vaccination sites contracted by the State of California is OptumServe, which is currently vaccinating by appointment at the Tice Valley Gym at 2055 Tice Valley Blvd, Walnut Creek. Eligible county residents age 65 and over can request an appointment online at

OptumServe Website: http://myoptumserve.com/covid19

or call 1-877-218-0381 (option 7).
This call center is open 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. weekdays,
7 a.m. – 7 p.m. weekends.

Contra Costa County recommends that you sign up either through MyTurn or OptumServe above because the County has a backlog of appointments and is now focusing on providing second dose vaccinations. To make a second-dose appointment at the county call:

1-833-829-2626.

Due to interruptions in the vaccine supply flowing to the counties, Contra Costa Health is not booking many new first-dose appointments. For first-dose county or state appointments, go to either MyTurn or OptumServe.
Nonetheless,you can get in line for a vaccination through the county by going to the Contra Costa County Health vaccination URL at https://Coronavirus.cchealth.org/get-vaccinated

Growing Summer Vegetables

Monday March 22, 10:30 am

Fred Rentschler presents a slide show and shares ideas on how to grow summer vegetables. Fred has had a long fascination with growing things to eat. This fascination formed early when he was a young child spending his summers on his grandparent’s farm in Utah. One of the reasons he moved to this area was the long growing season and hospitable climate. He has 47 years of experience growing edible plants in Contra Costa County. He knows what grows well in this area and why. He also knows what does not grow well here and why.
To reserve a place, email Jane, the leader of the Garden Group, at ginger20749@yahoo.com.
