Admission: $5.00  |  FREE for members


Author Laura Bock will read and tell stories from her new memoir, 
Red Diaper Daughter (Second Wave Press). The term “red diaper baby” suits her perfectly: Her parents were committed left-wing radicals. Their activism was part of the air she breathed growing up in the 1950s, and later, the inspiration for her involvement in the civil rights, anti-war, feminist, disability rights and lesbian movements.Meanwhile, she was running her own business, Bock’s Bed and Breakfast, in her family’s historic home near Golden Gate Park. Bock’s memoir is a vividly written, revealing and often funny look at her family and her life choices through more than six decades of U.S. history. Bock’s papers are housed at the GLBT Historical Society, where she has been a volunteer for many years.
