David Talbot:  A Wild Ride Through San Francisco’s Recent Past

David Talbot,  Founder & CEO, Salon.com; Author, Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror and Deliverance in the City of Love

John Diaz, Editorial Page Editor, San Francisco Chronicle - Moderator
 
San Francisco was the cradle of the 1960s, but also its coffin, giving rise to the Zebra and Zodiac killers, Altamont, Jonestown , the assassination of Harvey Milk, and the AIDS epidemic. And yet San Francisco not only rose from the wreckage of the 1970s, but developed a live-and-let-live tolerance that influenced the entire country.  In a kaleidoscopic narrative, the New York Times bestselling author of Brothers recounts the gripping story of the civil strife and tragedies that beset San Francisco between 1967 and 1982, and led to the city’s ultimate rebirth and triumph.
