"Mark Arax" http://kvpr.org en Mark Arax's "Big Valley" on Valley Writers Read http://kvpr.org/post/mark-araxs-big-valley-valley-writers-read <p></p><p>This week on Valley Writers Read, nationally recognized author and Fresno native Mark Arax reads his own story, "Big Valley."&nbsp;Arax describes much of our Central Valley -- its farms, cities, town, and neighborhoods. The story focuses primarily on&nbsp;agriculture in the San Joaquin Valley.&nbsp;&nbsp; He even takes us down to the&nbsp; popular agricultural&nbsp;fair in Tulare where they sell huge farm tractors for a quarter of a million dollars.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 08 Jan 2013 00:05:56 +0000 Franz Weinschenk 9076 at http://kvpr.org Mark Arax's "Big Valley" on Valley Writers Read
