Alta Journal & Books Inc. present retired award-winning journalist Duffy Jennings discusses his enthralling book, Reporter’s Note Book: A San Francisco Chronicle Journalist’s Diary of the Shocking Seventies.

Duffy Jennings became a San Francisco Chronicle reporter at the dawn of the 1970s, one of the century’s most turbulent decades for crime and social unrest in Northern California. The period was marked by political assassinations, serial killings, kidnappings, a mass suicide, attacks on police, a courthouse shootout, racial murders, gang warfare, and an assortment of counterculture terrorists and whack-job loners with guns and bombs. It was also a time of profound cultural and political upheaval anti-Vietnam War marches; draft protests; the black power movement; feminism; gay rights; and new excesses in sex, drugs, and rock and roll. In some ways, it was all connected. In just over eleven years, we went from the 1967 Summer of Love to the 1978 winter of hate.
