Gold Country Mini-Retreat

June 1, 2024

Auburn, CA

Since 2010 we've held annual Gold Country mini-retreats in beautiful Auburn, CA, nestled in the Sierra foothills. Like our other mini-retreats, this is a one-day event that combines discussion of a book (usually nonfiction) with a screening of a related film. There is a small charge, and lunch is provided.

The next Gold Country Mini-Retreat will be held on June 1, 2024 in Auburn, CA. We will discuss Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann. Then we'll view its recent film adaptation, directed by Martin Scorsese with an all-star cast headed by Leonardo di Caprio and Robert de Niro. 

Please join us for what is sure to be a thought-provoking dive into a fascinating piece of American history. For further information, please click the following link: event details and registration.

In recent years, the Gold Country Mini-Retreat has featured discussions of The Brothers by Steven Kinzer; Seven Years in Tibet by Heinrich Harrer; Queen of the Desert by Gertrude Bell; The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls; Lady in Gold by Anne-Marie O'Connor; and I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai; along with film adaptations or related films.
