Bohemians West: Free Love, Family, and Radicals in Twentieth Century America

Sherry L. Smith discusses her latest book, which explores the lives of Sara Bard Field and Charles Erskine Scott Wood, two aspiring poets and political activists whose letters chart a tumultuous relationship that spans the decades. Their love story uncovers a potent emotional world in early twentieth century America, a transformative time when radicals and reformers were seeking change not only in labor picket lines and at women’s suffrage rallies but also in homes and bedrooms.
