Speaker: Michele Shover
With the August 2022 publication of her book Chico's Chapman, Michele Shover has come full circle with the story of Augustus "Gus" Chapman. When she purchased an older home in Chico in 1976, she heard the house called "The Little Chapman Mansion" and that an early Chico entrepreneur who had developed Chapmantown had lived there. She was curious, and so would begin more than 40 years of research and writing, with Chapman's story leading her into every corner and cranny of Chico's past. She would publish extensively along the way on what she found beyond Chapman's own story, and now with her new book, she can "close the book" on Gus Chapman. She will have her book for sale - come and get a copy "autographed by the author"!
