Join us for the 16th annual Heyday Harvest, honoring David Harris for Lifetime Achievement and Rebecca Solnit with the Heyday History Award.
We will celebrate the collective effort of the Heyday community that brings our mission to life on a daily basis. You can expect to hear from Heyday authors and readers, publisher Steve Wasserman, board and staff members, and our honorees.
If you can’t make the broadcast on October 6, a replay will be available.
A fourth-generation Californian and legendary anti-war activist, David Harris is a former contributing editor at Rolling Stone and the New York Times Magazine and the author of numerous books, including Dreams Die Hard: Three Men’s Journey through the Sixties; Our War: What We Did in Vietnam and What It Did to Us; The Last Stand: The War Between Wall Street and Main Street over California’s Ancient Redwoods; and My Country 'Tis of Thee: Reporting, Sallies, and Other Confessions. He lives in Mill Valley, California. Learn more here.
Orwell's Roses (Viking, 2021) is a lush exploration of politics, roses, and pleasure, and a fresh take on George Orwell as an avid gardener whose political writing was grounded by his passion for the natural world. Rebecca Solnit is the author of more than twenty books, including Recollections of My Nonexistence, A Field Guide to Getting Lost, The Faraway Nearby, A Paradise Built in Hell, and Men Explain Things to Me. A product of the California public education system from kindergarten to graduate school, she is a regular contributor to The Guardian and other publications. Learn more here.
