In the early 1960s, Teamsters Union president Jimmy Hoffa was not yet the punchline of jokes. He was a powerful labor boss, accustomed to getting his way and running over those who got in his way. So Steven J. Harper was intrigued to find, after his father’s death, that more than 40 years ago James Harper stood up to the formidable Jimmy Hoffa, risking his livelihood — and perhaps even his life — in the process. Harper’s new book about his father’s nose-to-nose with the big guy is called “Crossing Hoffa.”

Among the rock music superstars of the mid and late 1960s, there were the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan … and Donovan, the Scottish-born original “flower child” whose musical influence was immense, for fans and fellow musicians alike.

By 1970, Donovan had recorded more than a dozen top-ten singles, written some 200 other songs recorded by major artists, and he was still only 24. And that’s when he dropped out. Now he talks about his youth, his music, and his legacy.
