FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Kathy Deinhart Hill:  “Hanged: A History of Idaho Executions”

 

 

 

 

You are cordially invited to join the Memorial Community Center located at 415 Wellington Place in Hope for a free presentation by Kathy Deinhart Hill entitled “Hanged: A History of Idaho Executions” on Friday, September 24th at 7 pm. 

 

“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.

 

Kathy Deinhart Hill is a retired teacher living in McCall.  Raised in northern Idaho, she 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 also published several books.

 

This program is funded in part by the Idaho Humanities Council, a nonprofit organization that serves as the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  This event is FREE to the public and will include complimentary desserts and coffee.

 

The last IHC event for the year will be “Classical Christmas Concert” by Pianist, Del Parkinson on Friday, December 3rd.
