Power shares story of being a radical woman

-A A +A

For the first time ever, Katherine Ann Power will reveal her experiences as a 1960’s-era radical, fugitive and prisoner which are detailed in her forthcoming book, “Surrender.”
A reading and discussion of the book will be 7 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 25 at Taos Community Auditorium.
The event is presented by Nighthawk Press and SOMOS, the literary society of Taos.
Power, a Denver native, will talk about her evolution from student activist against the Vietnam War, to guerrilla warrior, to fugitive on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, to prisoner, penitent, and now, practical peace catalyst. Power was the getaway driver for a bank robbery gone bad in 1970.
A student protester at Brandeis, she joined a group willing to take radical action against the Vietnam War. But things went wrong when an Irish policeman and father of nine was shot and killed during the robbery. Power fled and lived underground for 23 years before surrendering in 1993.
Power served six years in Framingham Prison (Framingham, Mass.) and has just completed 20 years of probation.
