We published a post in the spring about a teacher whose students wrote collaborative novels inspired by their study about the Everett Massacre. The first of those novels is nearly ready to post here on the site, and we are very excited to share.
We apologize for not getting the full schedule posted earlier, but we wanted to let you know about some event surrounding the commemoration of the Centennial of the Everett Massacre. We're planning to attend some of these events, and we'd love to know if you might be able to make it, too.
Here is the link to the full listing of events from tomorrow onward. There are film screenings, interviews and art presentations commemorating the events surrounding the massacre.
Saturday's presentationfrom 1-4 includes a talk by artist Deb Fox, the creator of The Everett Massacre: A Graphic Novel. Also featured is Fred Bird of the Labor Press Project at the University of Washington.
Sunday's documentary film, Cuts, also airing at 1 p.m., documents the lives of shingle weavers, and is followed by the reflections of a real-life shingle sawyer.
The Main Branch of the Everett Library is located at 2702 Hoyt, Everett, WA 98201.
Other events are held at the Evergreen Branch of the Everett Library, located at 9512 Evergreen Way, Everett, WA 98204.
