Words, Writers & Southwest Stories: Mike Purdy @ Southwest Library
Nov 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

At the Southwest Branch library, Presidential historian Mike Purdy peeks behind the political curtain through meticulous research–to expose that throughout history our presidents have dished out acerbic insults about other presidents, from the founding fathers to the age of Trump.

Author Purdy has prepared 101 Presidential Insults as fun and sometimes provokes one to laugh or wince, but is also thought-provoking and shocking at times—and is presented as a significant contribution to understanding the presidents.

This free event by ‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and is co-sponsored by the Seattle Public Library. Mike Purdy’s event will take place at 6 PM at the SW Branch Library, 9010 35th Ave.SW, on Thursday, Nov.14th, 2019.

In this new book, Purdy shares antidotes he found sometimes in private letters, diaries, and conversations, as various presidents let their guard down on what they really thought about a former, deceased, current, or future president. At other times, these insults have been audaciously proclaimed in public speeches, books, and to the media. By their own words, our presidents have demonstrated their flawed humanity with insults that are often humorous and sometimes surprising for their lack of decorum. We may laugh or perhaps wince as we hear of these 101 presidential insults.

‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ presentations are scheduled for the Second Thursday of each month at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Next month on December 12th, Humanities Washington co-sponsors Feliks Banel, local broadcaster and historian with his book, Storm Warning: Historic Weather in the Evergreen State.

For videos on these and other speakers’ presentations, check out “Events” at www.loghousemuseum.org . This newly re-named series is open to hosting any speaker addressing historical issues relating to the Puget Sound/Duwamish Peninsula and/or the general public. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, ‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ by phone at 206-290-8315 or e-mailing Dora-Faye@comcast.net

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek @ Camp Long
Dec 8 @ 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Fall nature outings are open for registration now!  Sign up for the popular nighttime walks, bird tours, mushroom walks, and so much more…

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek at Camp Long.

Longfellow Creek is a major waterway in West Seattle. It is also a little piece of the wild in the middle of the city. Coho salmon migrate up this waterway; beavers build dams and lodges on this creek; owls hunt for food along this artery. Explore a portion of this urban wilderness with a Seattle Urban Nature Guide. Look for seasonal changes and get to know some of your wild neighbors.

Be prepared to do some hiking over uneven terrain on this program.

Ages 6 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Everyone attending the program must be registered.

Meet the leader at the Camp Long Lodge.
