The Art, Music and Recreation Center of the San Francisco Public Library presents:

San Francisco architect and author Wendy Bertrand will read from her newly published memoir, Enamored With Place: As Woman + As Architect, (Eye On Place Press, 2012), and will discuss the importance of women’s voices in documenting social history.
Her memoir chronicles her experiences as a single mother on a mission to thrive, both personally and professionally. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelor of Architecture (1971) and a Master of Architecture (1972), after study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in France. Bertrand graduated at a time when only 3% of registered architects in the U.S. were female. She practiced architecture mainly with the U.S. Navy. She is a founding member of the Organization of Women Architects and Design Professionals. Her feminist values and concern for social justice have informed her design and management decisions, as well as her vision for the future of the profession.
