Washington at War: The Evergreen State in WWI

When: Thu., Oct. 19, 7 p.m. 2017

Led by historian Lorraine McConaghy, this program begins with an illustrated introduction to the war’s themes before offering a “Readers’ Theater,” a script that is read aloud together, allowing participants to speak the history they are discovering. The script includes excerpts from newspapers, diaries, writings, speeches and correspondence, and is based on extensive research in primary source material focused on the war’s impact on Washington — and how Washington impacted the war. Learn about and discuss this dramatic period of immigration, wartime industrialization, women’s rights, social change, radical labor, epidemic disease, and worldwide turmoil.
