Cousette Copelands Silicon Valley: Fact and Fiction is a historical record of the changes that occurred in Silicon Valley from 1961 to present. It is part history, part memoir, rich with photographs, and with a little poetry and fiction. Silicon Valley: Fact and Fiction is an exploration of Silicon Valleys complex Landscape and Industrial Changes, Ethnic Identity, San Joses rich cultural arts, San Jose State Universitys place in International kendo, and Silicon Valleys high-tech world. Copelands book describes her contacts with lesser-known, but much loved citizens of San Jose, as well as with well-known figures, such as Poet Robert Bly, Nobel Prize Winner Doris Lessing, and Cirque du Soleil star Vladimir Kekhaial. Copeland reveals hidden treasures about San Jose State University, Poetry Center San Jose, Upstairs at Eulipia, and more. Her intimate history is as one of the people who make up Silicon Valleys talented and diverse population. It is a personal and fascinating view of the time in which The Valley of Hearts Delight became Silicon Valley!
