Alec and I will be going to this and I wanted to be sure other people know about it:


On Saturday evening, May 5th, Peace Works will present Voices of a People’s History at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Olympia. This is a theater presentation of readings from the book of the same name edited by Anthony Arnove and Howard Zinn.

Other Voices performances have occurred in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Berkeley to great acclaim. The Olympia performance will be narrated by Anthony Arnove and will feature readers presenting true-life narratives from American history–from Sojourner Truth, Tecumseh, and Eugene Debs, to the present day–including an email from Gaza from Rachel Corrie.
