What does rural California sound like? What makes up the days, and what's on the minds, of people who live in the state's small towns? And how can reporters convey that accurately and evocatively to an urban audience? To complement the California Historical Society exhibition I See Beauty in This Life: A Photographer Looks at 100 Years of Rural California, five public radio reporters will share audio from across the state and discuss the joys and challenges of reporting in rural California. A panel discussion will be moderated by I See Beauty curator and writer/photographer Lisa M. Hamilton.
