Join us for Oral History Online Reading Series (Seeds of Something Different: An Oral History of UC Santa Cruz)

Dear Colleages,

Our new OH book, Seeds of Something Different: An Oral History of UC Santa Cruz, is having a series of online readings to get the word out and encourage folks to join the Seeds community and pick up copies from our second printing, which is just now hitting the shelves at our beloved local Bookshop Santa Cruz.
