  • The Lavender Scare: The Cold War Persecution of Gays and Lesbians in the Federal Government by David K. Johnson

Event Details

The Lavender Scare shatters the myth that homosexuality has only recently become a national political issue, changing the way we think about both the McCarthy era and the origins of the gay rights movement. And perhaps just as importantly, this book is a cautionary tale, reminding us how governmental actions in the name of national security can unjustly harm entire groups of American citizens.

This is a no homework book club. During meetings we will discuss certain excerpts from the spotlighted book that will be provided during the meeting, and discuss the themes.
