What do the authors Mark Twain, Mary Austin, Katherine Siva Saubel, and Lawrence Hogue have in common? They, along with an astonishing number of writers, have written about the California desert; in particular, the Anza-Borrego Desert.
This lecture will focus on the literature and stories emanating from the Anza-Borrego Desert, from pre-history to the present. Ruth Nolan, a writer, editor and teacher, is compiling a new anthology of California desert literature, to be published by Heyday Books in fall, 2009. The lecture will showcase some of the works included in Ruth's anthology.
