Reading California Book Discussion—The Dreamt Land: Chasing Water and Dust Across California

Mark Arax, author of The Dreamt Land, will join us to discuss his award-winning book about water movement and usage in California. Arax himself is a Central Valley native and comes from a farming family, so he has a special insight and connection to water use in that area.

In his book, he traces the history of land and water use in the state; he spent several years traveling the state and interviewing farmers, farm workers, land owners and others to weave together the story of water use and overuse in the state. This book is a must-read for understanding agriculture in the Golden State.
