‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,’ a historically based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is excited to announce that it is re-releasing a recorded presentation of Dan Raley, award winning sports journalist, at 6:00 PM on Thursday, April 9th. Raley’s presentation, entitled “How Seattle Became a Big-League Sports Town,” was originally delivered as part of the Words, Writers & West Seattle series on March 4, 2016. A favorite from the series’ early scheduling, Raley’s re-released presentation was chosen as a substitute for a live speaker due to social distancing mandates. The presentation will be made available at www.loghousemuseum.org on April 9.
Raley is an award winning sports journalist, author, and former aerospace writer. He worked as a journalist at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer for 29 years. His previously published books include The Brandon Roy Story, published by Old Seattle Press, 2013; Pitchers of Beer: The Story of the Seattle Rainiers, published by the University of Nebraska Press, 2011; and Tideflats to Tomorrow: The History of Seattle’s Sodo, published by Fairgreens Publishing, 2010.
‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ presentations are scheduled regularly for the Second Thursday of each month at 6:00 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library. The presentation for next month (scheduled for May 14th) will be announced at a later date, depending on our community’s ongoing efforts to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For videos of other speakers’ presentations, please visit “Events” at www.loghousemuseum.org. This 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 by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.
