The Memorial Community Center welcomes Kathy Deinhart Hill Presenting a FREE Idaho Humanities Event:

"HANGED: A HISTORY OF IDAHO'S EXECUTIONS"

Friday, September 24th @ 7 pm

Kathy Deinhart Hill was raised in northern Idaho and received her B.S. Degree in journalism from the University of Idaho.  Since her first trip down the Salmon River in 1989, she has focused her attention on the history of Idaho.  Hill has published many books.

"Hanged" is a collection of stories detailing the lives and crimes of the twenty-six men who faced Idaho's justice system and were given the ultimate penalty-death by hanging.  The lives of these desperate men, including how they came to Idaho, what they did while they were here, and what drove them to their crimes will be the focus of the presentation.  Pictures, newspaper headlines, trial and prison records will also be a part of the presentation.

This presentation is Free to the public and will feature complimentary dessert and coffee following the presentation and discussion.

This program is funded in part by the Idaho Humanities Council, a non profit organization that serves as the state based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
