BOOK SPECIAL: The ten highest dollar amount donors* get a copy of Double Play: The Hidden Passions Behind the Double Assassination of George Moscone & Harvey Milk with companion DVD, thanks to the generosity of publisher Vince Emery. It’s a gripping account of why Supervisor Dan White murdered gay rights leader Supervisor Milk and Mayor Moscone in 1978 and a riveting look at SF Bay Area politics from the ’70s to today. Author Mike Weiss was fascinating on Out in the Bay and Double Play is a great read! Hear our interview and learn more about the book here.
