Davis author Ruth Chambers will present a program about California’s Gold Rush days at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.
Once the famous Granny Muffin of Davis Community Television, Chambers now works with the Living History Program at the Sacramento History Museum. She has a Gold Rush puppet show, which covers the Gold Rush period all the way through the Transcontinental Railroad.
Chambers will discuss life as a woman who becomes a widow and has to support herself. The program covers the wagon train going west, having to earn a living, and dealing with the issues of the time in the Sacramento valley.
