The Free You, Vol. 4, No. 2
Menlo Park, Midpeninsula Free University, 1970. The Free You was the magazine of the Midpeninsula Free University, on the San Francisco peninsula, one of the 1960s' early experiments in alternative education, and an outgrowth of the countercultural movement that started at Kesey's Perry Lane home, on the border between Stanford and Menlo Park. This issue contains "Exercises in Creation" by Kesey, "pirated from Ken Kesey's Mexico Journals," which were written while he was a fugitive from a drug bust; the pieces were later published in Kesey's Garage Sale. This issue includes a "Special Supplement: History of Midpeninsula Land Use," an early model for grassroots activism in the San Francisco Bay Area that helped preserve a substantial amount of coastal lands in northern California from the rampant development that was underway at the time. Edited by Fred Nelson and Ed McClanahan, who was a classmate of Kesey's at Stanford, in Wallace Stegner's Writing Workshop. Slight edge wear and minor staining to foredge; near fine in stapled wrappers. [#033345] SOLD
