The San Francisco area of the late 60s and early 70s was a time of massive social change and numerous utopian ideas. That’s the time and place where author Shepard Siegel grew up, and the city’s idealist influence on him has never wavered.
Siegel’s latest book looks at the concept of how playfulness could benefit our lives.
“Disruptive Play: The Trickster in Politics and Culture,” explores the archetype of the Trickster and how this spirit of mischief informs social progress, art, and politics today.
