Every so often the Rancho has some great talks on their grounds, March 2012 promises to provide a few. I enjoy many of the talks at the Rancho because they provide an Indian perspective on many themes and issues in our popular culture. If that still does not sound appealing, most of the events are free including parking. If you live in Northern Orange County, Southern Los Angeles County, or Long Beach, these events are worth checking out. One last thing, if you are an Isabel Allende fan, you are going to love this schedule.
Check some of the planned events out:
