The brainchild of Dr. Joan Parkin, associate professor of English at Feather River Col- lege, the aim of the project is to offer a "comprehensive an- thology" of Plumas County lit- erature -- one that represents the county's various ethnic groups and their unique and varied experiences. Parkin suggested there is, likely, an abundance of still unearthed correspondence "hidden away in the attics of some of Plumas County's old- est families." At the height of the Gold Rush, wrote Parkin, "Chi- nese nationals made up over a quarter of the Plumas County population and Na- tive Americans coup.ted in the thousands." These people worked side by side with re- cent northern European im- migrants. Parkin hopes to discover memoirs, letters, oral histo- ries, poetry and fiction. She asks longtime county resi- dents to search for potential material, as she believes the county has a remarkable un- tapped literary resource to offer. Parkin thinks in grand terms, and practical ones as well. Her aim is to raise $19,000 for the project, which will serve as seed money and also show potential grantors the anthology has substan- tial community support. Speakers at the dinner in- cluded Paul Russell, assis- tant director at the Plumas County Museum, which Parkin touted as an invalu- able resource for this project. He spoke about the muse- um's archival contribution.
