ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the readers of the magazine 'Literary Cavalcade(LC)." The readers of LC who came of age during these years witnessed great social and political upheaval. They watched President John F. Kennedy's funeral and saw man's first steps on the moon. LC's editors took care to select literature that would help readers make sense of times that encompassed the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the women's movement, the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy. LC featured selections by writers like humorist Woody Allen and poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti who invented scenarios and language that magnified the absurdity of the world around them.
