HYDE PARK — Bill Ayers will launch his new series of talks, “Fresh Ayers,” on Tuesday at the Seminary Cooperative Bookstore with a discussion on how the antiwar movement changed after the Sept. 11 attacks.
Ayers, a founder of the radical group the Weather Underground group in the ‘60s and a former University of Illinois at Chicago professor, will start the new series of discussions about society and politics with Michael Heaney, author of “Party in the Street: The Antiwar Movement and the Democratic Party After 9/11.”
Heany’s book explores how the antiwar movement collapsed during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The 6:30 p.m. event is free and open to the public at the bookstore, 5751 S. Woodlawn Ave.
