We are a group of people seeking truth, insight and wisdom about the issues we face as individuals and as a society. Please join! You can become a monthly sustaining member for just $10 a month.

Join author C Pam Zhang to discuss her California Book Awards gold medal-winning novel for first fiction, How Much of These Hills Is Gold. The tale of two young Chinese siblings in the post-Gold Rush era, this stark.narrative has been subtitled by reviewers "this land is not your land" and compared to John Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath and William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying.

Although Pam will join us via Zoom, you can either join us virtually or in person.
