A Bomb in Every Issue

Slick, hip, challenging and smart - RAMPARTS Magazine evolved from a layman's catholic quarterly into a blockbuster monthly of humanistic ideals, subversive opinion, groundbreaking graphics, activist reporting, and premiere muckraking (1960s style). The Magazines and Newspapers Center of the San Francisco Public Library invite you to a special literary event, as author Peter Richardson presents A BOMB IN EVERY ISSUE: HOW RAMPARTS MAGAZINE CHANGED AMERICA.

Join us in the Latino/Hispanic lower level meeting rooms at 11AM on Saturday, January 23rd, 2010 for a look back at one of the most explosive eras in San Francisco journalism. RAMPARTS shook the nation time and again with exclusive stories of vice in officialdom and bold coverage of racial, economic, political, environmental, and social issues ignored by the mainstream press. Find out how it happened at this free program, which will feature also a book signing and sale.
