Please join us on October 26 at 12:00pm in Special Collections and Archives, room 4434, as author George Walker talks about his latest book Cucamonga Valley Wine: The Lost Empire of American Winemaking. The book draws heavily upon our Southern California Wine and Wine Industry Collection housed in CPP’s Special Collections and Archives. The author will talk about not only the history of Cucamonga Valley wine production, which at one time was America's largest wine-producing region, but also the rich resources he found in our collection. For questions, please contact Katie Richardson, Head of Special Collections and Archives, at

The event is open to all and light refreshments will be served.
