Diana Block: Clandestine Occupations
Broadway Books is excited to announce that Diana Block will discuss her new work at the store on Thursday, August 25th at 7 pm.
Diana Block’s new political novel Clandestine Occupations: An Imaginary History is the story of activist Luba Gold, as told by five different women who cross paths with Luba over four decades. Clandestine Occupations explores the difficult decisions that activists confront about the boundaries of legality and speculates about the scope of clandestine action in the future.

She spent thirteen years living underground with a political collective committed to supporting the Puerto Rican independence and Black liberation movements. Since 1994, Diana has committed herself to anti-prison work. Her previous writings include her memoir Arm the Spirit and she is a member of the editorial collective of The Fire Inside newsletter. She lives in San Francisco with her life partner, former political prisoner Claude Marks.
