Here on the Edge is the long-awaited story of how a World War II conscientious objectors camp on the Oregon Coast plowed the ground for the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. Author Steve McQuiddy will present a slideshow and talk on this group of artists and writers who carved an unpopular path during the dark days of the 1940s, then later inspired the likes of Allen Ginsberg and Ken Kesey.
McQuiddy did much of his research for Here on the Edge using materials from the library’s Special Collections and University Archives.
The book will be available for purchase and signing.
