Dolores Huerta came to CSUMB a couple weeks ago and said her piece about, among other things, her role with the United Farm Workers union and its leader Cesar Chavez. Now, it's Frank Bardacke's turn. The 1960s Berkeley student activist moved to the Central Coast in 1970, worked six seasons in the Salinas Valley fields, and taught at Watsonville adult school for 25 years. He wrote Good Liberals and Great Blue Herons: Land, Labor and Politics in the Pajaro Valley, and translated Tender Fury: The Letters and Communiques of Subcomandante Marcos and the Zapatista Army of National Liberation. In his new book Trampling Out the Vintage, he tells the story of the UFW's rise and fall, triumphs and struggles, culled from interviews with farmworkers, organizers, friends and opponents. [WR]
