DAVID B. WILLIAMS at Seattle Public Central Library
Co-presented with SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
This month begins with a much anticipated new book by naturalist David B. Williams, whose work has done so much to help shape our understandings of Seattle’s natural world and built environment. In Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City (University of Washington Press), he weaves together the history, natural history, and architecture of Seattle and invites us all on the roads and trails with him. You know about the Denny Regrade, but what about the Jackson St. Regrade, which lowered the streets about 100 feet? So much for both longtime residents and newcomers to learn--and enjoy in this book. David B. Williams’ previous books, include Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography.
Free admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Seattle Public Central Library is at 1000 Fourth Avenue (between Madison & Spring). For more information, please see www.spl.org or call 206.386.4636.
