Lunch & Learn: Book Reading with Jane Botkin 

Frank Little and the IWW:  The Blood That Stained an American Family is the true story about the life and family legacy of a tireless labor organizer.  Franklin Henry Little (1878–1917), an organizer for the Western Federation of Miners and the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), fought in some of the early twentieth century’s most contentious labor and free-speech struggles. Following his lynching in Butte, Montana, his life and legacy became shrouded in tragedy and family secrets. In her new non-fiction Frank Little and the IWW, author Jane Little Botkin chronicles her great-granduncle’s fascinating life and reveals its connections to the history of American labor and the first Red scare.
