The Islands in the Valley: A reception and talk by Dr. Anthony Barcellos

October 20 2012
6:00 to 7:30 PM
East Lake Ranch, 14011 East Ave, Turlock, CA
Flyer.pdf

Please join us on the beautiful estate of Joe and Mary Bettencourt for a presentation by Anthony Barcellos, on his recently published novel, Land of Milk and Money. Highly praised as a “full-blooded tale” by bestselling author John Lescroart, Land of Milk and Money tells the story of the Francisco family, immigrants from the Azores who settle on a dairy farm in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Their plans to eventually return to the Old Country fall by the wayside as their success grows and their American lives take root. A courtroom drama is at the center of the action as the heirs fight over the provisions of the matriarch’s will, jeopardizing a decades-long legacy of success. The story is familiar to many of us, to our sorrow. www.landofmilkandmoney.com

Speaker Presentation

Date & Time: April 26, 2012 - 7:00pm
Location: Carol Burke Student Lounge
Flyer: Flyer.pdf

Dr. Louis Warren from the University of California, Davis wil be presenting, " A Hole in the Dream: The Ghost Dance and the Making
of Modern America."

For many people, the Ghost Dance and its tragic climax at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in 1890 have come to symbolize the close of the frontier, the end of the Indian Wars, and the end of the nineteenth century. Yet, as environmental and western historian Louis Warren will explain in this fascinating talk, the Ghost Dance was not the death
knell of an outmoded way of life. Rather, it expressed a desire for environmental renewal which was widely shared among Indians and non-Indians, and among its results was the beginning of a modern, twentieth cen-tury sensibility that we now call cultural relativism.
