Words, Writers & Southwest Stories: Elise Hooper @ Southwest Library
Sep 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

At the Southwest Branch library on September 12, Elise Hooper will talk about her book “Learning to See,” a historical novel about the life of Dorothea Lange, who created some of the 20th century’s most iconic photographs. Lange is best known for her Depression-era work creating images that inspire, reform, and define the era. At a time when women were supposed to keep the home fires burning, Dorothea Lange, creator of the most iconic photographs of the 20th century, dares to be different.

This program is part of the Words, Writers & Southwest Stories series which features writers connected to the Duwamish Peninsula and Puget Sound. It is presented in partnership with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

The Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community. We support universal access to information and ideas, and present the Words, Writers & Southwest Stories program so that local history and authors are accessible to all.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.
