The next meeting of the Los Angeles History Research Group will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 16, 2011, in Seaver Classroom 3 of the Munger Research Center at The Huntington Library.

From the announcement:

Michelle Nickerson will present and answer questions about her soon-to-appear book, Mothers of Conservatism: Women and the Postwar Right, which examines how California women shaped the grassroots right that emerged in the two decades following World War II.  She studies red-hunting housewives who develop activist networks, institutions, and sensibilities in local education battles that contribute to the momentum of the conservative movement.  As in the past, this will be a special opportunity to celebrate the reading group’s origins and the best scholarship about the history of Southern California.
