Learning to Haight
by Andrew Bardin Williams
2012 IR Discovery Award Finalist. Jack McClure is assigned to write an article about an influential figure from the city's past. A beatnik, a hippie and a one-time movie star, Dean Simmons is anything but an easy interview, but Jack knows that getting to know the "real" Dean is his ticket off the news desk. Along the way, Jack learns what it means be an activist and to make a name for himself.
