On 26 October I talked with two authors with unique perspectives on California history.
I first spoke with Kevin Nelson about his book Wheels of Change: From Zero to 600 M.P.H. The Amazing Story of California and the Automobile (Heyday Books). The author will speak at 4 PM on Wednesday 28 October at the Book Seller in Grass Valley. He will also appear at 6 PM on Wednesday 4 November at the California Historical Society, 678 Mission Street in San Francisco.
I then spoke with Gage McKinney about his book The 1930s: No Depression Here (Comstock Bonanza Press), which covers life in Nevada County between the World Wars and especially in the 1930s. The author will speak in an event sponsored by the Friends of the Library at 7 PM on Friday 6 November at the Madelyn Helling Library in Nevada City. He will also speak before the Grass Valley Newcomers Club at 12:45 PM on Wednesday 2 December at the Alta Sierra Country Club about Cornish Christmas and the Grass Valley Cornish Carol Choir, the subject of his earlier book When Miners Sang (also Comstock Bonanza). The talk he gave at Foothill Flowers in Grass Valley on Friday 16 October is now available on YouTube and should appear soon on NCTV.
