Betty Reid Soskin: Sign My Name to Freedom

Apr 28 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Saturday, April 28, 5:30 pm
Pegasus Books Downtown

Author and activist Betty Reid Soskin shares insights about her memoir, Sign My Name To Freedom, as part of Independent Bookstore Day and the Bay Area Book Festival at Pegasus Books Downtown.

Free to attend.


Betty Reid Soskin has been a home-front war-years worker, a singer-songwriter and performer, a writer, a legislative aide, a National Parks ranger, a national icon, and an honest and tireless fighter, both against discrimination of all forms and for the growth and triumph of the human spirit and values that would benefit us all. In her blog, CBreaux Speaks at, she writes, “Life has never been richer, nor more abundantly lyrical,” and “I’ve grown into someone I’d like to know—were I not me already!”

Blending together selections from many of Betty’s hundreds of blog entries with interviews, letters, and speeches collected throughout her long life, Sign My Name to Freedom invites readers into an American life through the words and thoughts of a national treasure who has never stopped looking at herself, the nation, or the world with fresh eyes.
