Cathy Wilkerson “Flying Close to the Sun”
October 18th, 2007
It was the spring of 1970. A young woman named Cathy Wilkerson survived a bomb blast at a townhouse in Manhattan. Three other people were killed. It was, in fact, a bomb being built in the basement of that house by her colleagues with the Weather Underground, the radical leftist student group.
For the next ten years Wilkerson was a fugitive, before turning herself in. She pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of dynamite, and served a brief prison sentence. Now she tells her story, and the story of the Weathermen, in a book called “Flying Close to the Sun.”
