Moving to Berkeley in 1964 at the height of the Free Speech Movement and campus unrest, Alice Waters was drawn into a bohemian circle of charismatic figures whose views on design, politics, film, and food would ultimately inform the unique culture on which Chez Panisse was founded. Alice will sign copies of her new book at the end of the program.
