The public is invited to meet the four authors of Winters history books in a series of illustrated talks that begin Monday and continue through mid-February. Each talk will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the community room of the Winters Community Library, 708 Railroad Ave. in Winters.

Joann Leach Larkey, Yolo County historian and author of “Winters: A Heritage of Horticulture. A Harmony of Purpose,” will be the first featured speaker. She will talk about her experiences researching and writing this book, which documents the development of the Winters area from prehistoric times until the present era. It was published in 1991 by the Yolo County Historical Society.

Larkey also will include a slide show of some of the photographs that were reproduced in the book and will invite questions from the audience.

The series continues Monday, Nov. 28, with a presentation by Tom Crisp, longtime Winters High School teacher and author of “An Anecdotal History of Winters High School (with a little town history thrown in for good measure)” that was self-published in 2011.

On Monday, Jan. 23, the featured speaker will be educator, historian and author Gloria Lopez, who will talk about the writing and publishing of “An American Paella, Becoming American While Staying Spanish: A Century of Memories in Winters, California,” which she and her husband Michael Autry published in 2007.

The series concludes Monday, Feb. 13, with speaker Dorothy M. O’Niel, author of “Images of America: Winters,” which was published in 2009 by Arcadia Publishing.

The informal programs are co-sponsored by the Winters History Project Committee, the Winters Community Library, the Winters Friends of the Library and the Yolo County Historical Society.

For more information, call the Winters Community Library at (530) 795-4955.
