While I still Have my Marbles
Memoir of a women's advocate through her political activities and extensive travels both domestic and abroad by Helen Fama. Helen will be here giving a presentation on Saturday Nov 23 at 11am.
Helen Fama has a highly developed social consciousness and was a community leader who helped solve problems when needed. She is a dedicated mother, went to college with her sons, and was a charter member of the San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women and a candidate for public office. A staunch women's advocate, she includes much social commentary and a discussion on constitutional changes as well as gratitude for her exciting and romantic life. In retirement, she realized her childhood dreams of dancing and travel.
“Helen writes in a pleasant conversational style. Go with her to our country's most beautiful national parks and monuments. Read about her connection to the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. When she went to the Soviet Union, Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev called Helen's group Citizen Diplomats for Peace.”
- Kathy Hill, retired manager, Pac Bell Yellow Pages
