Past Event

California Exposures: Reading Californians Book Discussion

Author Richard White and photographer Jesse Amble White will join us via Zoom to discuss their gold medal award winner in the Californiana category, California Exposures.

Richard White gives an often irreverent commentary on California history from Sir Francis Drake and the mission era to the modern day. Jesse Amble White's stark but enchanting photos accompany the prose. This is not the history of California that you learned in grammar school!
