A longtime local journalist will reflect Wednesday evening on his 40-year career telling stories about the Coachella Valley.
Bruce Fessier joined The Desert Sun in 1979 and is perhaps best known for his coverage of local arts and entertainment.
He has covered every single Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and each Stagecoach country music festival, according to The Desert Sun.
“Bruce is perhaps the most well-sourced journalist in the California desert. He seems to know everyone, and everyone seems to know him,” wrote features editor Kristin Scharkey following Fessier’s retirement announcement last year.
Fessier co-founded the Desert Theatre League, and also served on Sonny Bono’s founding committee for the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
Fessier’s one-hour talk Wednesday evening for the Palm Springs Historical Society will bridge the Rat Pack Era of the ’50s and ’60s until Wednesday, organizers said.
The talk will begin at 6 p.m. at the Palm Springs Cultural Center, 2300 E. Baristo Road.
