Author Talk: Jersey Gold with Margaret C. Bowen

Presented by California State Library at California State Library

Margaret C. Bowen, co-author of Jersey Gold: The Newark Overland Company’s Trek to California, 1849, will discuss her book about the New Jersey pioneers who traveled overland to California in search of gold. This fascinating story will tell of this group’s search for fortune from the Oregon- California Trail to Independence, Missouri, which at times turned into heartbreak.

Feel free to bring a lunch.
