The Fettuccine Forum

Thursday, Nov. 7

by

The Fettuccine Forum has long served as a place where a wide range of political, cultural and local issues are given a public parsing by politicians, artists, historians, activists, advocates and professionals. This month, Max Delgado joins the long line of featured luminaries with an examination of early Mexican settlers in Southwest Idaho. Delgado, who wrote a biography of Mexican-American pioneer Jesus Urquides, will talk about the famous Boise businessman as well as other Idaho mule packers, miners and cowboys. Delgado's passion for history led him to earn a Master's degree from Boise State University and he now shares his wealth of historical knowledge with students at Centennial High School. Hosted by the Boise City Department of Arts and History, pizza and (of course) fettuccine, as well as beverages, will be available for purchase.
