Click below to watch the first virtual meeting of the Alta California Book Club, which Books Editor of Alta Journal David Ulin describes as:

an opportunity for us to rethink the book club as a kind of ongoing process involving events, involving posts and interviews and discussions on the Alta website, and to really think about digging deep into a book a month and in the process thinking about what California literature is and what California literature means.

Guests of the first meeting include C Pam Zhang, author of the acclaimed How Much of These Hills Is Gold, poet and editor of Lit Hub John Freeman, and historian Gary Noy.

To find an introduction for and transcript of the meeting, please head here and here, respectively.
