Lawyer, author, activist visits CSUS

The fate of 1960s-era idealism is the subject of a lecture by lawyer, author, activist and California State University, Sacramento alum John M. Poswall from 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20 in the University Library Gallery.

The event is part of the Friends of the Library annual meeting. Following his lecture, “What Happened to the Idealism of the ‘60s?,” Poswall will sign copies of his book, The Lawyers: Class of ’69. The novel chronicles the experiences of five fictional UC Berkeley law students and the evolution of their ‘60s ideals over the course of their lives.

Poswall is a 1966 graduate of CSUS, where he received numerous academic and leadership awards and also served as student body president, before attending law school at the UC Berkeley. He has been featured in numerous television and radio programs, discussing such issues as free speech and women’s rights.

Poswall is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has been called a “crusading attorney” by the Sacramento Bee for his work on behalf of battered women and victims of breast cancer. He also played a key role in the successful effort to close the Rancho Seco nuclear power plant.

For more information, call Kim Kuenlen, library development director, at (916) 278-5954. For media information, call (916) 278-6156.
