Using his many voices, multiple hats — and perhaps some surprises — Landler will share both factual and poetic accounts of the discovery of gold, the naming of Death Valley, and the exploits of legendary bandit Joaquin Murrieta. His stories will explore how the present can change the way we view the past.
This free program is suitable for adults and school-age children.
