Join UCSB Library on March 22 at 5pm for "Straight from the Source: The Source Family Archive with Isis Aquarian." This event features a conversation with Isis Aquarian about her life with the Source Family, a commune in Los Angeles in the early 1970s based on natural food, spiritual practices and psychedelic rock, and how she came to place the commune's archival materials with UCSB Library. Jodi Willie and Charlie Kitchings, her collaborators on a feature documentary and the new book Family: The Source Family Scrapbook, will also join the conversation.

Event will include film clips from the documentary and rare photographs from the Source Family Archive housed at the Library. The Source Family archive is part of UCSB Library's American Religions Collection.

This event is in conjunction with Lifting the Veil, or, How the Stars Aligned for Isis, Hermes, and Diana to Vanquish Satan and Usher in the Aquarian Age, an exhibition of archival materials from UCSB Library's American Religions Collection.

Event and exhibition are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
