Wherever There’s a Fight: How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers and Poets Created Civil Liberties in California
Authors Elaine Elinson & Stan Yogi
Wherever There’s a Fight captures the sweeping story of how freedom and equality have grown in California, from the gold rush right up to the precarious post-9/11 era. The authors will be in the store to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in California, and other topics from their recent Heyday Press release. Rock the vote!
