Gaye LeBaron on "The Wonder Seekers of Fountaingrove"

Fri, November 9, 2018, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Gaye LeBaron will give a very special presentation with Eric Stanley on her new book, The Wonder Seekers of Fountaingrove. LeBaron’s and co-author Bart Casey’s new book focuses on Thomas Lake Harris and his Brotherhood of the New Life, Lawrence Oliphant, and Kanaye Nagasawa. While it focuses on these three individuals, LeBaron says that the book is as much about Fountaingrove, the growth of Santa Rosa and California in the 20th and 21st centuries, and the October fires.

History Curator Stanley will pull items from the Museum’s Fountaingrove collection to discuss with Gaye LeBaron and how they relate to the book. Visitors will also have a chance to view the exhibit, From the Fire: A Community Reflects and Rebuilds, about the October fires that scorched all of Fountaingrove and burned the Round Barn, the last building left from historical Fountaingrove.

Books will be for sale at 10% discount to program attendees. The price below has been discounted and includes the sales tax. Ms. LeBaron will be available for signing after the talk.

Gift wrap will be available, courtesy of members from the Historical Society of Santa Rosa.
