Susan Tejada talked about her book, In Search of Sacco and Vanzetti: Double Lives, Troubled Times, and the Massachusetts Murder Case That Shook the World. Two Italian-born laborers, anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, were convicted of a 1920 daylight robbery and murder on the streets of South Braintree, Massachusetts, and executed in 1927. In her book she draws parallels between the anti-anarchism atmosphere surrounding the case and the terrorism-inspired actions prompted by the September 11, 2001, attacks, and documents that the defendants did not receive a fair trial. She was interviewed while at the 12th annual National Book Festival, held on the National Mall.

The program began and ended with scenes of the festival and scheduling information. close
