Our Community Reads is a series of programs inspired by a book selected in a public vote. Red Letter Days tells of Phoebe Adler, a young television writer in 1955 New York. Finding herself suddenly blacklisted, she flees to London and the seeming security of a community of fellow expatriate blacklistees. But not even the Atlantic Ocean can protect her from the reach of the FBI. This timely book reminds us of our heritage of free speech and independent thought and how they can be put at risk.
