Judy Gumbo Reading from "Yippie Girl"

Join us at Mrs. Dalloway's on Wednesday July 13th at 7:00 PM for an in-store appearance by author JUDY GUMBO, who will read from and discuss her new memoir Yippie Girl: Exploits in Protest and Defeating the FBI.

To register for this event, you must sign up on Eventbrite or come to the store in person.

Lifelong activist Judy Gumbo, an original member of The Yippies, a 1960s anti-war satirical protest group, offers an insider feminist memoir of her involvement with the Yippies, Black Panthers, women's rights, environmental actions, and a life of activism.

In this historical account, Gumbo reveals intimate details of—and struggles with—her fellow radicals Jerry Rubin, Anita & Abbie Hoffman, Eldridge Cleaver, Paul Krassner, Stew Albert, and more, detailing their experiences in radical protests. This deep dive into her activism includes details of her organization of a national women's rights group, her visit to North Vietnam during the war, her travels around the globe to promote women's liberation and anti-war protest, and her environmental activism. It also includes extensive excerpts from illegal wiretaps and surveillance by the FBI.
