Friday! Book Talk and Signing: Destiny’s Children with Dr. Roger Herst @ CHS 1/28/11
Friday January 28, 2011 - 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Book Talk and Signing: Destiny’s Children with Dr. Roger Herst Free Event @ California Historical Society
Destiny's Children is a carefully crafted and well researched saga of post-Civil War California. These were the decisive years when the transcontinental railroad was being built, one of the most colorful and inspiring periods in our history. The novel plays out over a large canvas and is based on the actual pioneers whose super human struggles forged the modern west. Destiny’s Children artfully presents California in the 1870’s and the extraordinary challenges of building the western half of the transcontinental railroad on a very personal level. The vital contributions of Chinese immigrants at this key moment in California’s history are a central theme of the book. Dr. Herst is a fourth generation San Franciscan, graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and a doctorate in history. The book will be available for sale at the event.
