Author Mark Arax comes to the Sacramento Public Library as a book tour stop for his new book, The Dreamt Land: Chasing Water and Dust Across California.The Dreamt Land is a heartfelt, beautifully written book about the land and the people who have worked it - from gold miners to wheat ranchers to small fruit farmers and today's Big Ag. Since the beginning, Californians have redirected the rivers, drilled ever-deeper wells and built higher dams, pushing the water supply past its limit. The author will be in conversation with Donna Apidone of Capital Public Library.
Mark Arax is a native son, from a family of Central valley farmers, a writer with deep ties to the land who has watched battles over water intensify even as California lurches from drought to flood and back again. Arax confronts the 'Golden State' myth in riveting fashion.
