Bookmarks Reading: Memories from the Sixties Generation

Monday
March 3, 2014 — 07:00 PM

This Bookmarks reading is curated by local writer and memoirist Carol Derfner. It is free.

Do you remember The Sixties? It was an era of awakening, rebellion and responses to the world in new and sometimes confusing ways: student rebellion and anti-war demonstrations, civil rights marches, and the agitation for women’s equality, the explosion of American art, music and popular culture; Elvis, Motown, the Beatles and Janis Joplin, Earth Day, organic foods and Julia Child; JFK and Jackie; cool cars and women in the workplace. We will hear the voices of men and women who were part of the fabled generation who lived those life-changing moments that transformed the way we all live today. “Boomers” (and their families) share their personal experiences of this passionate time through a short memoir, personal essay, a poem or even the lyrics of a song.
