Author Gerald Haslam in conversation with Heyday Books publisher Malcolm Margolin. Like the best of Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, and William Saroyan, Gerald Haslam is known for his crackling humor, canny understatement, and salty irreverence. He captures the vibrancy of California in a collection of stories that are rich in local dialect and color-- from a perspective that only a native son can provide. Born in Bakersfield and raised in Oildale, California, Gerald Haslam is the author and editor of numerous books of fiction and nonfiction, including Workin? Man Blues: Country Music in California (also available from Heyday Books) and The Great Central Valley: California?s Heartland.Members FREE ; Public $7.00For reservations call 415-393-0100or email at [email protected]
