Historical Society: More Murder and Mayhem in the Fourth Corner

October 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

- Suggested donation/members free
Mayhem * Murder book cover

Join local author Todd Warger for a book talk and slideshow about Murder & Mayhem in the Fourth Corner: True Stories of Whatcom, Skagit & San Juan Counties’ Earliest Homicides. The book is the third in a series of true crime stories occurring in the confines of Washington state’s northwest corner during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The region has had a vivid history of gory slayings, much like anywhere else, which included beheadings, shootings, stabbings, poisonings, hangings, strangling, and bludgeoning.

Warger is an Emmy Award nominee for the documentary film The Mountain Runners.  He is a recipient of the Washington State Historical Society’s 2008 David Douglas award for the documentary film Shipyard  and is co-author of Images of America: Mount Baker.

Co-presented by the Whatcom County Historical Society (WCHS). $5 suggested donation/Museum and WCHS members free.
