I am getting around to some wonderful North State communities in the next few months. I love to talk to folks about history and am always happy to give presentations or sign books. Here’s what I have on my calendar:
Thursday, September 1: Orland Friends of the Library. 10 a.m. at the Orland Free Library meeting room. I’m looking forward to seeing old friends in Orland where I used to work as a children’s librarian.
Saturday, September 10: Chico History Museum, 10 a.m. The museum has a good slate of upcoming speakers. Come and see my presentation on Alvin Coffey.
Saturday, September 10: Tehama Museum History Keepers Rendezvous, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Loads of local history from local authors and their books. You may have noticed that I have two events scheduled on the same day. Not sure how I did that, except that I thought one of them was the following week. Not having a split personality, I will just have to do the best I can to be both places on the same day.
Thursday, September 22. Colusa Friends of the Library, 6:00-7:00 p.m. I have never been to the Colusa County Library, so as a dedicated library lover, I am looking forward to this one.
Saturday, October 15: Dairyville Orchard Festival. 10:00 – 4:00 at Lassen View Elementary School. Authors, crafters, artisans, and plenty of yummy food. Check it out!
Wednesday, November 9: Book-signing at the Chico Branch of the Butte County Library, 4:00-5:00 p.m., sponsored by the Chico Friends of the Library. My hometown library! Come and say “Hi!”
If you would like to have me come and speak to your group, just let me know. Put it in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t charge a fee, unless you want to help me pay for gas.
I love to talk to students and classes too. Let your California and U.S. History teachers know.
I hope to see you at one of these events!
