10/25: Book Launch for E.P. Thompson and the Making of the New Left with Cal Winslow

Join us Saturday, October 25th to celebrate Cal Winslow and his latest book, E.P. Thompson and the Making of the New Left, in Sausalito, CA

In his early years, Cal studied with the brilliant scholar and activist, E.P. Thompson, author of the acclaimed historical masterpiece The Making of the English Working Class.

Thompson was also a political activist and strategist who played a key role in shaping the New Left of the 1960’s. He engaged with workers, unions, political parties, elections and co-founded the New Left Review.

Cal’s new book explains the critical role that Thompson played in shaping New Left thinking in Britain, America and around the world – with insights that remain valuable and relevant for political activists today.

Join Cal and a crew of merry political activists at a buffet dinner aboard this Sausalito houseboat. Enjoy an evening of food, fun, drink and spirited political discussion. You’ll have an opportunity to buy Cal’s book at a discounted price. And yes, it’s happening in Marin County, so there will be a hot tub!
