About this event

As we celebrate Native American Heritage Month, spend time with Louise Dunlap and her new book Inherited Silence: Listening to the Land, Healing the Colonizer Mind. A descendant of Napa founder Nathan Coombs, Dunlap looks back at early settlement history, and why the true story of her ancestors and the Indigenous people of Napa Valley was kept silent for so long. Enjoy brief readings from the book followed by a Q&A. Napa Bookmine will have copies of the book to sign and sell. Sponsored by the Napa Valley Genealogical Society and the Napa County Historical Society.

Registration is required. This event is available to attend either in-person or virtually on Zoom. Please select the type of ticket you would like when you register.
