EVENT: "Tree" Booksigning & Presentation with author Mary Sempill Watts


"TREE" takes the reader on a journey through more than two centuries of California history, from the struggles of the surrounding animals and plants to the human settlers—Chumash, Spanish, American, and contemporary Angeleno—who alter the face of the valley. The saga of Tree becomes a window into the immensity of nature and the ways that humans have come to upset the ancient balance.
