Civics, Literary

Salon CEO David Talbot delivers a bloody Valentine to San Francisco in his new book Season of the Witch, which recounts the civil strife and tragedies that rocked the city from 1967-82—but  ultimately led to its rebirth and triumph. As part of Salon’s “American Spring” campaign, Talbot ties into the grassroots movements discussed in his book, delving into the history of national social issues that started out in San Francisco: gay rights, medical marijuana, universal health care, recycling, renewable energy, and consumer safety. Presented by University Book Store.

Tickets are free with the purchase of the book from UBS or $5 UBS locations.
