Californiana Collection Produced by the Braille and Talking Book Library, Sacramento CA Revised 2021 About the Californiana Collection The Californiana Collection is a supplemental collection of audio books for patrons of the Braille and Talking Book Library. This collection seeks to reproduce material of local interest: books by California authors and/or books about California history, geography, politics, culture, people, information, humor, folklore. In short, the Californiana collection includes fiction or nonfiction that has anything to do with California. It may also include materials on events or people that have been marginalized or historically underrepresented. In rare instances, exceptions to the California-centric requirement may be granted for materials about blindness and related disabilities, Braille, and assistive technology. All books are also available for download from BARD. You may order any of the books in this catalog by contacting the library by phone, email, letter, or fax. Books from the Californiana Collection are recorded by volunteers in BTBL’s recording studio. BTBL is grateful for all the hard work and dedication of our studio volunteers. Without them, this Californiana Collection would not exist. Patrons, volunteers, and other interested stakeholders are encouraged to send requests for books to add to the Californiana Collection, as long as they follow the parameters mentioned above. Email: [email protected] Phone: (800) 952-5666 (toll free in CA) or (916) 654-0640 and, if unable to reach a BTBL librarian directly, leave a message in the Reference voice mailbox. Important: Please do not overwhelm BTBL librarians with frequent, multiple, or repetitive requests; we prefer a few title requests at a time from a single party no more than once per week. 2 Table of Contents FICTION BOOKS 3 Family 3 Fantasy 3 General Fiction 4 Historical Fiction 4 Mystery 4 Romance 5 Science Fiction 5 Short Stories 5 Westerns 6 NONFICTION BOOKS 7 Biographies and Autobiographies 7 Business 9 History 9 Music 11 Religion 12 True Crime 12 BOOKS FOR CHILDREN 13 Children’s Fiction 13 3 Fiction Books Family Bloodvine: a Novel by Aris Janigian DBC16730 10 hours, 44 minutes Narrated by: Walter Phelps One man resolves to learn the secrets kept by his family, Armenians farming in the great central valley of California in the 1950s.
