A what? A "Home Grown Author Night." See, Saturday, July 21, at 6 p.m. at Oaksterdam University in Oakland, we're hosting a panel of cannabis intellectuals for conversation, book sales and signings. It's the kind of high-caliber talk we've always wanted to go to. So we made it happen. And it's free to the general public.
— University of Cincinnati Assistant History Professor Isaac Campos, author of 2012 book "Home Grown: Marijuana and the Origins of Mexico's War on Drugs"
In conversation with:
— RAND's Co-Director of their Drug Policy Research Center, Beau Kilmer, author of 2012 book "Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know"
— Celebrity grower Ed Rosenthal, author of "Marijuana Grower's Handbook"
Explore the myths versus the facts in cannabis' past, present and future, with the best authors of 2012. Engage in a short, audience Q&A, and enjoy refreshments, book sales (bring cash!) and signings.

And if you want to volunteer, or be a part of it in anyway — like, say you want to sponsor refreshments and snacks — you can contact us in the comments, through the paper, or any number of ways, really.
This is going to be a lot of fun, very informative, and we hope to see you there.
