About this title:

Synopsis: Hear and feel this dynamic California in the words of established writers like John Steinbeck, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Joan Didion, as well as compelling new voices that reveal California in all its complexity.

California Uncovered is a central component of the California Stories Uncovered campaign—a statewide program sponsored by the California Council for the Humanities designed to inspire people to tell and listen to stories that get at the reality beneath the headlines, statistics, and stereotypes about the state and its people.

About the Author: Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is the award-winning author of The Mistress of Spices, Sister of My Heart, Queen of Dreams, and many other books.

William E. Justice studied Russian literature at the University of Kansas and is currently special projects manager at Heyday Books.

James Quay has served as the executive director of the California Council for the Humanities since 1983.
