Overview

Fly-fish the pristine waters of the Owens River. Step up to the microphone in a California honky-tonk. Surf the biggest waves California has ever seen. Mingle with ducks in an urban oasis. Roller skate through LA's Union Station. My California is a collection of narrative travel and adventure stories by twenty-seven of California's finest writers. It's also a labor of love: All of the contributors donated their work so that proceeds from this special anthology can benefit the embattled California Arts Council and writing programs for children statewide. �These 27 essays prove once again that California is the Golden State,� says Ray Bradbury.

Join contributors Pico Iyer, Michael Chabon, Thomas Steinbeck, Dana Gioia, Matt Warshaw, Patt Morrison, T. Jefferson Parker, Edward Humes, Mark Arax, Deanne Stillman, Rub�n Mart�nez, Percival Everett, Kathi Kamen Goldmark, Mary Mackey, Gerald Haslam, Aimee Liu, D.J. Waldie, H�ctor Tobar, Firoozeh Dumas, devorah major, Carolyn See, Chryss Yost, Anh Do, Derek M. Powazek, Daniel Weintraub, David Kipen, and Veronique de Turenne in a good read for a good deed!!
