The Book Report: Aleta George

Oct 13, 2015

The Book Report is a series where we talk to local authors about the books they love. 

Today we hear from Aleta George, who is discussing Frank Norris' McTeague. George's book Ina Coolbrith: The Bittersweet Song of California’s First Poet Laureate was released in spring of 2015. 

Money and gold and mining and greed is a significant part of California history. This book is a little bit different because it's how it affects working class people, and their obsession with money and gold and how it affects their lives.
