A Family Saga through California's Rich History.
When twenty-something Nicole Sinclair stumbles on DNA reports that document an ancestry far different from her father's narrative of a white, northern European background, she enlists the help of her great grandmother to investigate their roots. As they search, their true Californio ancestors come to life, a Spanish soldier, a captured native and a young settler who walks north from central Mexico.
In This Land of Plenty's family saga introduces the diverse cast of characters and complex social issues that populate California's rich history while drawing a direct line to today's residents.

In this virtual event, author Mary Smathers will read from her skillfully written debut novel, "In this Land of Plenty." Mary will share about her inspiration, research and storytelling in a lively conversation with local journalist and filmmaker Robin Shepherd.
