Words, Writers & Southwest Stories: Feliks Banel @ Southwest Library
Dec 12 @ 6:00 pm

At the Southwest Branch library, local broadcaster and historian Feliks Banel explores our region’s darkest weather days and most infamous storms in his book, Storm Warning: Historic Weather in the Evergreen State. With archival photos, radio, and TV clips, Banel takes us back in time to hear stories of those who survived some of the worst Pacific Northwest weather in recorded history.

This free event by ‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society is co-sponsored by Humanities Washington and the Seattle Public Library. Feliks Banel’s event will take place at 6 PM at the SW Branch Library, 9010 35th Ave.SW, on Thursday, Dec. 12th, 2019.

Banel explores how the storms in Washington can revive our shared humanity. Frightening weather can bind communities together to share resources, commiserate, and protect each other. Participants are encouraged to share their own memories of how they survive being snowed in, washed out, or left without power in the wake of a big storm—and why we remember those moments for the rest of our lives.

Feliks Banel is a writer and producer and serves as editor of COLUMBIA, the quarterly magazine of the Washington State Historical Society. He has been a host and contributor for KIRO Radio on matters of Northwest history and culture for many years; he created the history series “This NOT Just In” for KUOW Public Radio, and he produces documentaries for the Seattle Channel.

‘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 January 9th, David Ward will present ROORD: To War in a Rubber Duck, one of a series of WWII historical fiction novels.

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 .
