Obi Kaufmann and ‘The Deserts of California’ 

Posted on October 30, 2023 by Sonoma Valley Sun

Author, artist, and naturalist Obi Kaufmann comes to Sonoma on Thursday, November 16 at 6 pm to present his newest book, The Deserts of California, at Artefact Design & Salvage, 20490 Broadway, in downtown Sonoma. 

This illustrated volume is the final  installment of a trilogy exploring the complex ecosystems of California.  

Obi Kaufmann is an award-winning author of many best-selling books on California’s ecology, biodiversity, and geography. Obi’s signature style is as artful as it is analytic, combining masterful renderings of wildlife, hand-painted maps, and data-driven storytelling to present a hopeful and integrated vision of California’s future.

The evening features a lively author talk and audience Q&A, followed by a book signing and wine reception in the Artefact showroom, where you can also browse unique gifts and home décor and meet proprietor Dave Allen.

Tickets are $15 per person, including wine reception, and seating is limited.
