New York Times-bestselling author James Conaway discusses his new book, Napa at Last Light: America's Eden in an Age of Calamity. A portion of sales from this event will benefit our co-sponsor, Napa Vision 2050--a coalition of affiliates in Napa County that work together to advocate for environmentally sound and healthy development policies and practices within the Napa community.
Hailed as the definitive Napa writer, Conaway has spent decades covering the region. Napa at Last Light showcases the greed, enviable profits, legacy, and tradition that still collide in this compelling story. The area is still full of dreamers, but of opposing sorts: those longing for a harmonious society based upon the vine envisioned by Thomas Jefferson more than two hundred years ago, and self-styled overlords yearning for wealth and the special acclaim only fine wine can bring. Bets are still out on what the future holds.
