Published by the University of California Press since 2011, Boom: A Journal of California highlights work by students, journalists, academics, artists and other creative professionals about the sociocultural landscape of the Golden State. Sadly, this winter it published its final print issue, titled "Seeing California." At the Boom California Winter Reading, the Last Bookstore hosts a lineup of contributors reading from the last issue of the beloved publication, with California poet laureate Dana Gioia and Boom editor Jason Sexton among those scheduled to appear. Plus, as thanks to the community for its support, copies of Boom's final print issue are free with the purchase of any book by one of its contributors.
