Historian Gary Noy will return on September 15, 2017, with a California Gold Rush program about Luzena Stanley Wilson. Wilson traveled with her family from Missouri to California in 1849 in search of a better life. In an illustrated lecture Noy will recount the remarkable story of Luzena’s triumphant spirt. He will draw upon material from his book Gold Rush Stories: 49 tales of Seekers, Scoundrels, Loss and Luck.
