Newspaper Clippings: April 16, 1901

Newspaper Clippings: April 16, 1901

Some of my favorite “easter eggs” to sprinkle throughout the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries are the references to events I found while reading through The Spokesman-Review for the days I’ve set the stories.

At the end of one particular day in Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker, Marian Kenyon sits back and flips through the April 16, 1901 edition of The Spokesman-Review. Readers might recognize the following articles which were referenced in the story…

As the first article shown suggests, President McKinley is on his way to Spokane #onthisday in history! I’ll be sharing more articles as we count down to the release of Book 2 in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries so that by the time the book releases—May 17—you’ll know everything the characters know!
