Moore, Jr. will discuss his new book The Life of Robert Noble Burgess, a richly layered and insightful biography of a pioneering land developer and financier whose remarkable career in the first two decades of the 20th century mirrored the social Darwinism of his era and helped to shape Contra Costa County as we know it today.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
