Gentrifying Paradise?  A handbook for fighting gentrification.

Actually, the book’s subtitle is Resistance and Removal in 21st Century Venice California, and Democracy Now’s Juan González described it as follows: “This is a captivating people's history of the battle to preserve one of America's iconic neighborhoods, Venice, California, from the claws of real estate developers, downtown politicians and the merchants of mass consumerism. Author James R Smith weaves together his own personal memoir, his many muckraking dispatches from one of the few surviving 1960s alternative newspapers, the Free Venice Beachhead, and unforgettable sketches of scores of grassroots activists who banded together over many decades to defend their beloved ocean side town from outsiders with money and power." Author Jim Smith will join us to discuss his new (2019) book. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
