“WHAT WERE THE ’60S REALLY LIKE?”   I loved reading this outtake from the book, about the commune I visited in West Virginia, called Welcome Home.  The farm had been purchased by a couple of middle class dropouts, a dentist and his wife I called the Schafmans. 

“What Were the Sixties REALLY Like?” August, 2017, The Cornelia Street Café, NYC.  I read one of my favorite excerpts from Home Free.  Enjoy!
