Think you know everything about West Seattle? Even the most knowledgeable natives and transplants were bound to find a surprise when Lori Hinton published “West Seattle 101,” based on columns she had been writing for the West Seattle Herald.
Lori contacted WSB to see if this could be an additional place to get the word out about “West Seattle 101,” and since we are devoted to continuing to add to the amount of West Seattle information you can find at WSB – it was an offer we couldn’t refuse.
The book is a collection of 101 — of course! — short features about West Seattle places, activities, and people. We aren’t publishing all 101 immediately, but as time goes by, we’ll keep adding to the archive. Ready for you to read here now:
