Costco to Host Book Signing for The California Delta Author

Carol A. Jensen will be available to sign copies of pictorial history

STOCKTON, Calif. - May 27, 2014 - PRLog -- For many years, tourists and residents have enjoyed the 1,000-mile waterways that comprise the California Delta.  But now, as the years progress, the Delta has become a hot topic of discussion for its wildlife-habitat restoration, water rights, and deteriorating levees.

In her third book with Arcadia Publishing, Carol Jensen once again captures her audience with a captivating history of a local landmark that is now challenging both locals and politicians.

Jensen hopes “that this work will bring back fond memories of Hal Schell and inspire readers to save the California Delta by restoring its levees.   Ms. Jensen regards the book as a remembrance of Hal Schell, a dedication both she and the East Contra Costa County Historical Society are delighted to give.”

Highlights of The California Delta:

·    Features the archives of Hal Schell, “Mr. Delta”

·    Stresses the importance to rebuild and repair the California Delta and its levees to avoid a catastrophe

·    Includes the Delta smelt, a small, once-prolific fish that is near extinction

Join the author for a signing:


1616 East Hammer Lane, Stockton CA 95210
