    City Lights bookstore, led by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, began publishing books in 1955. It made its first big splash with Allen Ginsburg's "Howl and Other Poems" a year later. It continues to publish books today, and it has a reputation for publishing books on the extreme left of the political spectrum.

    Shown here are "Howl on Trial" a story about the fight over Howl's publication and "The Awakener," which is a memoir of Jack Kerouac. These only scratch the surface. There are many other books in this display, such "To Die for the People," by Huey Newton.
