Berkeley Author Tells Of Lincoln Brigade Veterans

Tuesday April 19, 2005

Berkeley author Richard Bermack will read Thursday from his just-published volume on American Marxists who volunteered to fight with the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in the Spanish Civil War. 

Published by Berkeley’s Heyday Books, The Front Lines of Social Change: Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade examines the lives of veterans both during and after the war. 

Many of the vets in the book hailed from the Bay Area. The reading begins at 6 p.m. in the Travlin’ Joe Home Cafe, 2801 Seventh St.
