Though they live in California, for most residents the cultural landscape of the state often remains undiscovered. As a feature writer for The New York Times, Patti Leigh Brown has been examining the relationship of people to place in the state, from elderly immigrants in Fremont to Azorian bullrings in the Central Valley. Join Patti for a discussion about the stories she has written and the challenges of interpreting California for both those who live here and those who don’t.
