Author talk: Learning from the Sixties with John Maher

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

In Learning from the Sixties, Maher traces his progress from a privileged background in Houston, Texas, to a Harvard education and volunteering as an antiwar activist. He went on to debate city councilor and former mayor Al Vellucci, back rent control, and become a leader of the New Left. Maher later helped build Neighbor to Neighbor, a progressive organization advocating for community control and improved standards in working-class neighborhoods. It continues to have a major impact on Massachusetts politics.
