RSVP’s are open for our next California Studies dinner, featuring Richard Walker, “Pictures of a Gone City: Tech and the Downside of Prosperity in the San Francisco bay Area”.
The high tech boom has been a bust for many Bay Area residents.  Seminar co-convener Dick Walker discusses this and other contradictions of recent Bay Area economic history in his important new book, “Pictures of a Gone City.”   Professor emeritus and former Geography Department chair at UC Berkeley, Walker is the author of several ground-breaking works, including “The Country in the City: The Greening of the San Francisco Bay Area” and “Conquest of Bread: 150 Years of Agribusiness in California.”
Free admission and dinner. Please RSVP via GoogleForms.
