Come join us at USF on Saturday, November 6th when Bay Area Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement will host a coming-out book party for the long awaited "Hands on the Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC" Every aspect of SNCC's history is represented in this anthology of 52 of the SNCC women who worked on the front lines of the Southern Freedom Struggle. Joining us on November 6th for readings and discussion will be nearly all of the contributors now living in the West: Jane Bond Moore, Cathy Cade, Peggy Dammond Preacely, Bettie Fikes, Betita Martinez, Maria Varela, and Jean Wiley. Special guest will be Faith Holsaert, a contributor and one of the six editors who labored for 15 years to get this book published.
Please pick up a copy of HANDS at your favorite independent bookstore, and ask them to stock it. The university's bookstore has ordered a limited supply of about twenty copies for purchase at this event.
We look forward to seeing you!
