Stranger reporter Ana Sofia Knauf wrote, "On January 27, 2013, James Anderson walked into the Central District's Twilight Exit and shot two people: his 24-year-old girlfriend and bouncer Greg McCormick. Both of them survived. Anderson was later fatally shot by a police officer. Stranger contributor Marti Jonjak was at the club the night of the shooting. She and a friend sat next to the woman at the bar and later found themselves crouching next to her when Anderson came into the bar with a gun. Since then, Jonjak has chronicled the shooting through conversations with witnesses in a column for McSweeney's, with illustrations from Seattle artist Kelly Bjork." Stranger editor Eli Sanders described the series as "fascinating and important."
At this event, hear from Jonjak, who will read selections from the column. She will be joined by author and former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper, who will share his book, To Protect and Serve: How to Fix America’s Police and Breaking Rank: A Top Cop’s Exposé of the Dark Side of American Policing.
