Lauren Coodley 

When: Thu., Oct. 17, 6-7:30 p.m. 2013
Upton Sinclair is the kind of singular author who’s associated not just with one seminal work — The Jungle, his first book, which was published when Sinclair was only 25 — but credited with all but creating an entire genre of writing — in his case, the undercover exposé novel. But Sinclair had a body of work — and a set of ideals — that extended far beyond what most people realize, or than college syllabi across the country would indicate: He wrote more than eighty books after The Jungle, won a Pulitzer Prize, and, especially later in life, devoted much of his energies to socialism and feminism. It’s that side of Sinclair that biographer Lauren Coodley explores in her new book, Upton Sinclair: California Socialist, Celebrity Intellectual, which she’ll discuss at University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) this week.
