Invite your friends and family to this very special event featuring a conversation with local author JoAnn Levy and information from the Friends of the Amador County Library (FACL) on how they support the library. FACL will also tell us about the upcoming plans to celebrate the library's 100th anniversary.
Inspired by women in California's gold rush, JoAnn Levy is the author of five books about their lives and stories:
They Saw the Elephant
Daughter of Joy
For California’s Gold
Unsettling the West
The Sutter Creek Chronicles
. Veteran of numerous radio interviews, featured in several TV documentaries – including PBS’s “American Experience” – JoAnn's public appearances include Villa Montalvo’s prestigious speaker series and the National Archives in Washington DC. She currently serves on the California State Library Foundation board of directors. Curious about the characters in her books? (Who’s her favorite?!) Or a working writer’s career? (How’d she get started?) The why, when, where, or how she does what she does? Let’s ask!
JoAnn’s books are in the library; used copies for sale at
