Award-winning author Adam Hochschild delved deeply into letters, diaries, memoirs and other documents, published and unpublished, to weave a compelling narrative in his new book Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939. One of those Americans, Bob Merriman, was a graduate student at Berkeley. Hochschild will discuss how he found the story in a vast and complex array of sources, some of them from the Doe, Moffitt and Bancroft libraries.
