History on Tap: “The Murder of JoAnn Dewey in Vancouver, Washington”
Clark County Historical Museum will continue its History on Tap program at the Kiggins Theatre on Thursday, April 18, with historian Pat Jollota’s presentation of “The Murder of JoAnn Dewey in Vancouver, Washington.” Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m.
The evening will commence with a gameshow-style segment in which local celebrities are invited on stage to answer a series of historical questions about Clark County and beyond. The questions will be drawn from a Clark County trivia game created by local historian and author Pat Jollota. The next segment, “Ask Pat,” will feature Pat’s answer to one question about local history, as selected from social media (#AskPat), email, or submitted through the museum.
For the main event, Pat Jollota will present the chilling details of the tragic 1950 murder of JoAnn Dewey in downtown Vancouver, and the subsequent arrests and trial. This talk is based on Jollota’s true crime history book, “The Murder of JoAnn Dewey in Vancouver, Washington.”
Audio support for “History on Tap” is provided by the Courtney Irvin Trust, and marketing support is provided by ZZoom Media. Additional support is provided by Vancouver’s Downtown Association. Tap Takeover for the April 18 event is sponsored by Fortside Brewing Company.
