|Book Talk and Signing-No Rooms of Their Own: Women Writers of Early California|
Ida Rae Egli examines the lives, times, and literary history of fifteen amazing women who came to Calif & recorded what they saw and experienced.
History Museum of Sonoma County
In No Rooms of Their Own: Women Writers of Early California, Ida Rae Egli examines the lives, times, and literary history of fifteen amazing women who came early to California and recorded what they saw and experienced. These women came from very diverse backgrounds. Lucy Young was a native Northern Californian from the Lassik tribe who survived the annihilation of her village. Jesse Benton Frémont was the daughter of a prominent senator, the wife of the controversial Colonel John C. Frémont, and an early homesteader in Mariposa County. Ina Coolbrith later became California’s first Poet Laureate, and was, perhaps, more than just a friend to Mark Twain. Sarah Royce came overland by wagon and confronted cholera. Together these fifteen women leave a literary trail of history and storytelling that is rough, amazing, enlightening, and entertaining.
Ida Rae Egli, the descendent of gold rush immigrants, raised in Mendocino County, taught for many years and was chairman of the English Department at Santa Rosa Junior College. Her first book, No Rooms of their Own: Women Writers of Early California was published by Heyday Books in Berkeley. She is retired, living in Santa Rosa.
