Auburn, California has a rich and colorful history, much of it focused on the discovery of gold by Claude Chana in 1848 and the ensuing gold rush that put Auburn on the map. But there is another, less obvious vein of gold running through the hills and ravines of Auburn- our literary heritage.
While Auburn’s place in historical literature may have arisen from the ghosts of George Milton and Lennie Small, the protagonists in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, our town has a real literary history as rich as Steinbeck’s language itself.
