The Bonnie Cashin Lecture

I'm working hard on the Bonnie Cashin lecture, which I'll deliver at UCLA on June 15. I'm trying to answer a basic question. If Kevin Starr is right that Carey McWilliams is "the single finest nonfiction writer on California--ever," how come so few Californians know about him? Even after thinking about McWilliams and his work for years, I haven't quite figured that out, so I'm curious about where that question will take me.

Here's a link with lecture info:
