National icon Betty Reid Soskin, 96, has been a war-years worker, a singer-songwriter, a performer, a legislative aide, a National Parks ranger and a tireless fighter against discrimination of all forms and for the growth and triumph of the human spirit.

In 2003, Betty displayed a new talent—writing—when she created the popular blog CBreaux Speaks. Her new book, Sign My Name to Freedom, blends together selections from many of her hundreds of blog entries with interviews, letters, and speeches collected throughout her long life. The book 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.

Celebrate the accomplished life of this Bay Area hero with a conversation, reading and book signing of her new memoir. Books will be available for purchase at the event. 

This is a Green Stacks event sponsored by the San Francisco Department of the Environment.

These cultural events are free and open to the public.
