fall, Everett Public Library

*The Everett Massacre Remembered*

This fall, Everett Public Library presents an ambitious series of programs
commemorating the centennial of a seminal event in Everett’s history, the
Everett Massacre, a labor confrontation which became a shootout on
Everett’s waterfront on November 5, 1916.

The series, which begins Saturday, October 15 and ends Tuesday November 15,
is comprised of 10 speakers and a total of 15  programs. The library will
also feature several displays, concerts, podcasts, a film series, and
pointers to the library’s Northwest History Room
<http://epls.org/nw-history/our-nw-historians>’s extensive collection of
materials about the Everett Massacre.

The Everett Massacre commemorative series aims to explore not only the day
of the massacre itself, but also the social and economic conditions that
led up to it, as well its surprising aftermath. The full slate of the
series viewed at www.epls.org/emc and on a flyer available at either
library branch. With the exception of the film series, all events will be
held at the Main Library, 2702 Hoyt in Everett. There is no charge to
attend any of the programs.

Series speakers are *David Dilgard*, of the Everett Public Library
Northwest Room; *Doug Honig*, Communications Director of
ACLU-Washington; *Jason
Ripper*, History Professor at Everett Community College; *Fred Bird* of the
Labor Press Project at the University of Washington; *Deb Fox*, author of *The
