Ojai Library Book Group Presents: Making the Reata with Local Author Terry Tallent

The Ojai Library Book Group welcomes everyone to a discussion of Making the Reata by Terry Tallent, March 7, 7:30pm.

Mr. Tallent has written a moving coming of age tale set in 1832, the end of the California Mission Period. 

Making the Reata is a beautifully written and carefully researched story that weaves the history of Ventura County into an informative depiction of the conflict between the Chumash and the Spanish invaders as well as an enchanting story of the relationship between a Mission Padre, Chumash Elder and a young boy. 

Woven into the story is the construction of a reata (lariat) by the Mestizo protagonist and his Chumash mentor, an apt metaphor for the complex task of respecting tradition and heritage while adapting to change.
