Having wrapped up the last days of Black Bart, I think I will take a little vacation from blogging. I will be posting now and then, but I have family activities coming up and other projects to work on. Just a couple of notes:
I spent an enjoyable Saturday at the Dairyville Orchard Festival in Tehama County. Here I am with my comrades-in-arms, Ron Womack (center) and Eric Ritter (right). It was a successful day for Goldfields Books (me) and for the Association for Northern California Historical Research (ANCHR). I have assisted on several ANCHR books and if you are interested in exploring our publications, go to anchr.org, where you will find a complete list available for purchase online.
I have a book-signing event coming up on Wednesday, November 9th at the Chico Branch of the Butte County Library. I hope you can join me at 4:00 p.m.
Steve Ferchaud will be there too — a great opportunity to meet the illustrator.
My books are ideal for children interested in history, for 3rd and 4th grade teachers doing local and California history, for school libraries, and for parents and grandparents who are looking for a great true read-aloud.
Buy a book (Christmas is coming), pick up a free bookmark, enjoy a treat, and chat with Steve and me.
I’d love to meet you, so please come!
