A live and participatory event series featuring readings from the new illustrated book Seeds of Something Different: the Oral History of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Seeds of Something Different: An Oral History of the University of California, Santa Cruz, just published by the UC Santa Cruz Library’s Regional History Project, features first-person accounts of the campus’s evolution, from the origins of an audacious dream through the sea changes of five decades. More than two hundred narrators and a trove of archival images contribute to this dynamic, nuanced account.
Each session will feature co-editors of the book and special guest respondents, including some of UC Santa Cruz's most beloved faculty and staff. The series is created especially for UC Santa Cruz alumni, but all are welcome!
The first session will focus on the Pioneering Era and the Rising Counterculture (1960s) and will feature the UC Santa Cruz Library’s Regional History Project SEEDS team, along with guest commentators Frank Zwart and Ed Landesman.
