Presentation: An Idahoan Named Egurtxiki

March 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us March 3 at 6pm to welcome Xabier Irujo, director of the William A. Douglass Center for Basque Studies and current Eloise Garmendia Bieter Chair in Basque Studies at Boise State University. He will be giving a presentation entitled, “An Idahoan named Egurtxiki, the man who learnt Euskara to write about the bombing of Gernika.” The Idahoan in question is William Smallwood “Egurtxiki,” who conducted more than one hundred clandestine interviews among survivors of the bombing of Gernika in the spring of 1972 and wrote one of the best books on the bombing, The Day Guernica Was Bombed. He passed last December in Arizona.

We will be following CDC guidelines for masking at this event.
