Mark your calendars, Chicago.
On Friday, September 14th, H&B Press will be in town for the opening night reception of Chicago 1968: The Whole World is Watching, a book and exhibition featuring the work of rock photographer extraordinaire Michael Cooper and satirical scribe Terry Southern.
The photographs—taken during the protests of the 1968 Democratic National Convention and ensuing police riots—have never before been published and accompany the famous November 1968 Esquire essay "Grooving in Chi" by Terry Southern [Dr. Strangelove, Easy Rider, Candy, The Magic Christian] and other critical texts about that fateful time in American politics, including afterwords from Adam Cooper and Nile Southern, Michael and Terry's sons and co-editors of the book.
The official book release party and the exhibit's opening night reception will be held at Land & Sea Dept. in Chicago's Garfield Park neighborhood.
Come and see why Chicago 1968 still elicits outrage and, particularly in these times, deserves to be remembered.
