Revolution and Counterculture… Hippies or Freaks (was there a difference?) Was The Movement groovy or terrifying? Brainless or ingenious? Did we win or did we lose? What went down in Paris, Prague, Mexico City, and on campuses and streets across America? How do we reflect back on the resistance that shook our nation and the world? And what else was going on when the whole world wasn’t watching?

That was then… this is now.

You’re invited to a nostalgia-free reading and discussion of what happened, what was won, what was lost, and what remains. This event is not just for veterans who lived those times—it’s for everyone!

We’re pairing up for this event with our friends from the SoCal Chapter of the National Writers Union (our Director Emeritus Eric Gordon is its Chair). We’ll feature readings by our members and friends, of anything related to the ’60s and ’70s—fiction, non-fiction, memoir poetry, song. Keep it short—five minute limit—so everyone gets a chance to participate. And then we’ll get down with some serious conversation.

Feel free to invite friends and prospective members. Admission is free to all. Light refreshments will be served.

NWU member Charles Degelman will have on hand copies of his new book A Bowl Full of Nails for sale and signing. It’s set during this time.

RSVP to circle@circlesocal.org so we know how many to set up for.
