Two new Bay Area-themed books

Leave a comment

Explosion cover-sm.jpgTwo wonderful books were just published that each shed welcome light on the impact of the SF Bay Area – The Explosion of Deferred Dreams : Musical Renaissance and Social Revolution in San Francisco, 1965-1975 by Mat Callahan (PM Press), and Lavender and Red : Liberation and Solidarity in the Gay and Lesbian Left by Emily Hobson (UC Press). I happened to work with both authors, and am honored to have provided the cover and inside poster art from my archive.

LavenderAndRed-sm.jpgThese books draw from painstaking scholarship, persistent interviews with activists, and provocative analysis to reveal new truths about how our social movements emerged. Highly recommended, both.
