Join John Schubert, author of “The Hidden History of Sonoma County” at the Petaluma Historical Library and Museum to hear of the enterprising spirit and enthralling history that led to Sonoma County’s storied agricultural heritage and defined its earliest denizens. Sail the seas with Captain Bodega y Quadra, whose name graces the coast and beyond, and wave farewell to the last train out of the redwoods. Discover the fate of Charles Henley, spirited from the county jail in 1876 by masked vigilantes. Learn about the rise and fall of Sonoma’s tobacco growers and the historic opening of the Jenner Bridge as the automobile rose in popularity. Schubert will be available after his talk to sign copies of his book. Admission: $5 suggested donation.
