The monthly Activist Support Circle
in Santa Monica featured as its guest author Pat Thomas, whose book, "Did It! From YIPPIE to YUPPIE: Jerry Rubin, an American Revolutionary," comes out September 5.
Our discussion delved into Rubin's entire life from childhood, to involvement in the Free Speech Movement in Berkeley, to co-founding the yippies, to his involvement with John Lennon, to his relationship with Abbie Hoffman, to his work at a brokerage firm on Wall Street (it's not widely known that he was selling solar technology in the early '80s).
