Presidio Book Club

Saturday, Jul 22, 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM At Presidio Officers' Club Offered by:

Presidio Trust

David Talbot, Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love (Free Press, 2012)

The traditional book club reimagined as an inclusive public program that anyone can take part in, whether or not they’ve read the book. Enjoy contextualizing remarks by Presidio Trust historian, Barbara Berglund, and then participate in or just listen to the facilitated discussion of both the book and the general topic that follows. Think of this as part book club, part graduate seminar, part Parisian salon.

At this Event

Commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and explore its aftermath with this vivid and sweeping history of events and people – from the diggers and the hippies, to Patty Hearst and Jim Jones, to the Milk-Moscone murders and the AIDS epidemic -- that shook and reshaped the city from 1967 to the 1982.

This title is available for purchase at the Presidio Visitor Center.
