In Marin, it’s been a rewarding year for author and academic, Betty Goerke. Back in February, she was recognized for her “significant contributions advancing the understanding of the past in Marin County.” This Sunday, October 21, she will be honored by the Mill Valley Art Commission, at their annual awards dinner. In this story from our archives, Goerke sat down with KALW’s Steven Short to discuss the subject of one her books, the namesake of Marin County.
