LAWRENCE HISTORY LIVE!
The Festival features, as part of its historical and labor exhibits, Lawrence History Live! and the Community Forum, a place for discussion of labor, industrial heritage, education, and other community issues. Lawrence History Live! presents its 10th edition after having been created by Linda and Jurg Siegenthaler in 2008.
Within the Lawrence History Live! tent, we'll have seating and a platform where historians, writers, union representatives, and community activists will present their insights on Lawrence's history and present. In a question-and-answer format, festival visitors will be able to participate in what will be an exciting encounter with the past and with society today.
Again this year, there will be a second speaker's venue at the Community Corner, adjacent to our history and labor section. A soap box is also provided.
So, there is plenty to take in! Get involved, learn, and enjoy!
The Community Corner has scheduled additional speakers on labor and social issues, as well as poetry readings, labor songs, and more.
Coordinators: Linda Siegenthaler, Jurg Siegenthaler, Elizabeth Pellerito, Bernard Trubowitz, Christina Villafranca
