Join the WSJHS on Mercer Island for our next History Happy Hour on August 13th. Light refreshments will be provided.

Registration required for admittance.

About the Speaker:
John Hamer former writer and editor for The Seattle Times will speak about the power of the press and his experience in the Soviet Union in the early 1980s and how this experience produced a decade long campaign to champion the effort of freedom for Refusniks (Soviet Jews) as well as other political prisoners. This presentation is part of our ongoing program "Soviet Jewish Experience: Washington State Stories."
