Announcement :: Labor : Radical Culture
The Wobblies in Their Heyday Book Talk
02 Sep 2016
Saturday, September 24 – 2:00 p.m.

Somerville Public Library

79 Highland Avenue, Somerville

Author and former Somerville resident Eric Chester will discuss his recent work, The Wobblies in Their Heyday: The Rise and Destruction of the Industrial Workers of the World during the World War I Era.

Based on extensive archival research, The Wobblies in Their Heyday looks at the union during the World War I era when it was able to organize militant strikes that drastically curtailed production in key industries, copper mining and lumber. It also looks at the debates within the union on how to build a broadly based movement to oppose the war. The book also details the coordinated campaign of repression launched by the administration of President Woodrow Wilson with the intention of crushing the Wobblies.

This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Fountain Avenue Labor Support Committee (617) 625-9070
