William Adler recounts the life of labor activist Joe Hill (1879-1915). A member of the labor union the Industrial Workers of the World (I.W.W.), Joe Hill was known for his outspoken politics and the many songs he wrote and performed championing workers' rights. Mr. Adler examines Joe Hill’s political life and his death by firing squad in Utah for the murder of a Salt Lake City grocer, a crime the author contends Joe Hill did not commit. At this event at Book Passage Bookstore in Corte Madera, California, Mr. Adler was joined by singer/songwriter Jon Fromer, the recipient of the 2011 Joe Hill Lifetime Achievement Award from the Labor Heritage Foundation. Mr. Fromer, accompanying himself with guitar, punctuated the talk with some of Joe Hill’s songs. William Adler also responded to questions from members of the audience. close
