Thursday, September 27 BILL AYERS
talks about FUGITIVE DAYS
A compelling memoir, Fugitive Days is a portrait of a young
pacifist who became a founder of one of the most militant political
organizations in U.S. history. It's the story of Bill's ten years on the
run as a fugitive, but it's an honest, amazingly American story of a
boy's journey into life. "A memoir that is, in effect, a deeply moving
elegy to all those young dreamers who tried to live decently in an
indecent world. Ayers provides a tribute to the better angels of
ourselves." Studs Terkel. "^Ayers's America and his family background,
his education, his political awakening, his anger and involvement, his
anguished reemergence from the shadows: all these are rendered in their
truth without a Trace of nostalgia or 'second thinking.'^essential,
indeed necessary, reading." Edward W. Said.
7:30 PM at Cody's on Telegraph Avenue at Haste in Berkeley.
