Name: Former Parkdale Resident to Read from Latest Novel
Date: February 9, 2019
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM PST
Event Description:
Former Parkdale Resident, Paula Friedman, will read from her new novel, The Change Chronicles at the Hood River Library on Saturday, February 9, at 2p.m. Friedman’s book explores the emotional stakes felt by activists of the late-1960s antiwar and feminist movements. The Change Chronicles is a historically accurate and carefully crafted tale of personal and political change, rooted in Friedman’s background as a Berkeley Barb reporter and an activist in numerous late-’60s antiwar protests—including the nonviolent Port Chicago Vigil at Concord Naval Weapons Station, munitions shipping point for the Vietnam War (now a Superfund site recently shortlisted for “detaining” immigrant families), according to the author. Ursula K. Le Guin called Friedman’s first novel (The Rescuer’s Path, 2012) “exciting, physically vivid, and romantic”; Cheryl Strayed called it “humane, and wise.” This program is free and open to the public.
