Authors Elaine Elinson and Stan Yogi will present their book, “Wherever There’s a Fight,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis.
The book describes how freedom and equality have grown in California, from the Gold Rush to the precarious post-9/11 era. It details the stories of individuals who have stood up for their rights in the face of social hostility, physical violence, economic hardship and political stonewalling.
Elinson was the communications director of the ACLU of Northern California and editor of the ACLU News for more than 20 years. She is the co-author of “Development Debacle: The World Bank in the Philippines,” and has published articles in several newspapers and journals.
Yogi has managed development programs for the ACLU of Northern California since 1997. He is the co-editor of two books, “Highway 99: A Literary Journey through California’s Great Central Valley” and “Asian American Literature: An Annotated Bibliography.”
