Poet Marjorie Laughlin @ Senior Center of West Seattle
Nov 19 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

At the Senior Center of West Seattle:

“I Loosed My Father’s Boots” is West Seattle Poet Marjorie Laughlin’s first collection of poetry. She will be sharing poems from this collection when she reads at the Senior Center after lunch on Tuesday, November 19 from 1pm to 1:30pm.

Her poems include remembrances of her childhood on the family farm on Ribbon Ridge and small town living in the Chehalem valley in Oregon. Marjorie’s poems are wide ranging. A visit to family friends in a small village in Italy resulted in her poem “Generations.” Working in her garden and observing the beauty of the iris led to “A Tale of Two Queens.”

Marjorie doesn’t shy away from social issues or even existential ones. “A Thirty
Foot Drop” discusses hazards facing people experiencing homelessness. “Resurrection Day” is about capital punishment. “Picnic on the Beach” reflects on the possibility of a nuclear conflagration. “A Visit” shows the heartache of dementia. Many of Marjorie’s poems reflect on nature. Her approach with familiar subjects sometimes comes with a twist.

If you’d like to join us for this reading, please register in advance at the front desk or by calling 206.932.4044 x1 so we know how many people to plan for. This event is free.

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 .

For more information, call 206-386-4636 or Ask Us. For ADA accommodations, please contact: leap@spl.org.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Words, Writers & Southwest Stories: R.O.O.R.D: To War in a Rubber Duck @ Southwest Library
Jan 9 @ 6:00 pm

At the Southwest Branch library, Local Authors Present R.O.O.R.D: TO WAR IN A RUBBER DUCK, a Novel of World War II.

According to the novel’s fictional premise, Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt created a covert unit to aid in the British prosecution of the war in 1939. The unit was a R.O.O.R.D. unit, the acronym standing for “ Reconnoitering, Observation, Opposition Resources, Destruction.” It was funded by America and staffed by Americans recruited to serve under Churchill’s direction. The Americans soon redefined the ROORD. acronym to stand for The Royal Order of Rubber Ducks. They named their seven B-25 Mitchell aircraft accordingly — for example, Rubber Ducky, Duck Butt, Duck and Cover, etc. Only two of the planes survived the war.

This free event by ‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society is co-sponsored by the Seattle Public Library and will take place Thursday, January 9th at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library, 9010 35th Ave. SW in West Seattle.

The three authors: writer Rodger Pettihord, taught English to members of the military overseas and was a Presbyterian pastor; Jim Rubin, a retired Army warrant officer and military historian; and David Ward, a retired military and airline pilot worked together on the stories that wound up as this book. Rubin provided technical research and Ward oversaw flight authenticity. The three men are good friends and say their book was written for anyone who enjoys a good story but the story has also become a labor of love as they wrote about the WWII generation. All three men had family in that conflict, and all have friends from that generation of the military. The authors wanted to end up thinking of these stories as a good read and a tribute to those who were there.

Covering the years 1939-1946, the novel engages the major events of the European Theater of World War II. In that sense, it is the story of the war itself. Readers will finish the novel with a heightened picture of the war’s arc but the novel also engages the realities of service in that war. If the major events of the war form the skeleton of the novel, the individual stories provide its heart and soul.

The novel does not paint the European Theater in simple black and white colors — Nazi brutality and barbarism are confronted with no assuagement, but German bravery and honor are also acknowledged. While the novel joins history in condemning all things Nazi, it also joins in the postwar desire to recognize those Germans who refused to wear lock-stepped jack-boots and instead tried their best to remain human.

‘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 .
