Join Rick Just in an interview with Alessandro Meregaglia.

January 19, 11:30 - 1:00 pm 

Alessandro Meregaglia is an archivist, assistant professor, and librarian at Boise State University. Alex discovered an unpublished manuscript by Vardis Fisher, written for the Federal Writers' Project in 1936. It was a guide to Boise that, because of political reasons, was never published. Meregaglia spearheaded the effort to publish this unknown book by arguably Idaho's most famous native author. Rick Just will talk with Meregaglia about how he found the book, why it was important to publish it more than 80 years after the fact.
