William Adler

About the Program

William Adler recounts the life of labor activist Joe Hill (1879-1915).  A member of the labor union the Industrial Workers of the World (I.W.W.), Hill was known for his outspoken politics and the many songs he wrote and performed championing workers rights.  Mr. Adler examines Joe Hill's political life and his death by firing squad in Utah for the murder of a Salt Lake City grocer, a crime the author contends Joe Hill did not commit.  William Adler speaks at Book Passage Bookstore in Corte Madera, California.
