Sonoma County has long been home to a fervent and persistent community of progressive political activists. One of them is now telling his personal story in a new autobiographical account of nearly four decades of dissent and protest.
Like many longtime political activists, Fagin began organizing and protesting while in high school. But, he recalls, that came after he learned to question and understand his own thoughts and feelings about the issues that moved him.
Rebel Fagin will be selling and signing his book at the annual Progressive Festival in Petaluma on Sunday afternoon. There will also be a book release party at the Peace and Justice Center on Friday evening, August 12.
