Melvyn Stiriss, author of Voluntary Peasants—Inside the Ultimate American Commune—The Farm, enjoys storytelling and speaking about his extraordinary experiences as a young UPI newsman who followed the sixties over the edge in pursuit of enlightenment and adventure, featuring extraordinary experiences living twelve years at the country’s biggest, most storied commune.
Melvyn presents an entertaining informational program—storytelling, reading from Voluntary Peasants, showing pictures and taking questions. Beginning talks with a blast on a conch shell, (optional) Melvyn conveys “special sixties energy.”
Melvyn speaks in libraries, book stores, college and universities—history, sociology, journalism, comparative religion and creative writing classes, and to all groups interested in alternative living, back-to-the-land lifestyles, collectivity, communes, hippies, veganism, group think, cults, spiritual gurus and cannabis spirituality.
