Tommy Orange set his novel about indigenous lives in Oakland, but he is by no means the first or only author to try to capture something about the essence of California or its distinctive urban identities in his writing. This panel brings together creative writers whose work touches in meaningful ways on the magnificent diversity that is California. From poetry to a graphic memoir, their writing helps us see our home (or adopted home) state in a new light.
