In Rocklin: Tales of Dreamers, Schemers, Bigots and Rogues


Rocklin, CA -- On Sunday, April 13 in Rocklin, Gary Noy will present an illustrated lecture on unusual and lesser-known stories of Sierra Nevada  history, with a special focus on local events and personalities.

The presentation is based upon material from his book Sierra Stories: Tales of Dreamers, Schemers, Bigots and Rogues (Heyday and Sierra  College Press, 2014), which will be available for sale and signing.

Among many stories, Noy, a Grass Valley native, will recount hidden tales of figures such as Andrew Hallidie, Charles Young, and Adah Isaacs Menken, and other largely unknown stories of adventurers, innovators, artists and scoundrels who have populated the spectacular Range of Light - the Sierra Nevada.
