Local Pens First Book

Alameda resident Cathy Dana recently released her first book My Dad Believed in Love, at Books Inc., Feb. 11, to a packed house of more than 110 people. Above, Dana (center, with headdress) and her “ukulele orchestra” asked the audience to sing along with “Oh Susanna,” one of her dad’s favorite songs. The ukulele group meets Thursdays, 1:30 p.m., at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1323 Central Ave., and welcomes all to come play and sing.
