Join author and journalist James Mitchell to celebrate the release of The Walrus and the Elephants: John Lennon’s Years of Revolution at Barnes and Noble in Huron Village on Tuesday, December 10th at 7 pm. A reading and discussion on John Lennon’s special relationship with Ann Arbor will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
The opening chapter of the book takes place in Ann Arbor and focuses on the historic benefit concert that Lennon headlined that was held for poet-activist John Sinclair to challenge his ten year prison sentence for possessing two joints.
Based entirely on new interviews and research, The Walrus and the Elephants is the first book about John Lennon to show how his emergence as a solo artist, his embrace of radical politics and feminism, and his love affair with New York City coincided.

Sarah Erdreich will be in Ann Arbor at Nicola’s Books to discuss her new book Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movement on Thursday, March 7th at Nicola’s Books.
Women’s health advocate and writer Sarah Erdreich has been identified as a leading pro-choice activist by Newsweek, and her incisive writings on abortion rights have been noted by Jezebel, Feministing, and the National Partnership for Women and Families. She has worked for several prominent pro-choice organizations, and has been published in On The Issues, Lilith, Feminists For Choice, and RH Reality Check. She has also worked editorially with the magazines HUES and Teen Voice. Generation Roe is her first book.
Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movement delves into phenomena such as “abortion-recovery counseling,” “crisis pregnancy centers,” and the infamous anti-choice “black children are an endangered species” billboards; tells the stories of those who face threats on their lives to pursue careers in this stigmatized field; outlines the outrageous legislative battle grounds that have popped up all over the country; and takes to task pro-choice activists for allowing the very words used in the debate to be controlled by anti-choice rhetoric.
