Jourdan Imani Keith Presents “Womxn & Whales First, Poetry In A Climate Of Change” @ Online (see listing)
Mar 21 @ 4:00 pm – 5:10 pm

Join Seattle Civic Poet Jourdan Imani Keith and six other poets who will read work that shows how protecting endangered womxn will protect endangered whales. Registration required. Click here to register.

Celebrate World Poetry Day with seven Black, Indigenous, Womxn of Color reading original poetry that explores the intersectionality of womxn’s health, healing, and the endangered Orca whales of the Salish Sea. Seattle Civic Poet Jourdan Imani Keith says, “As Black Indigenous Womxn of Color in Seattle, we share the urban wilderness of the Salish Sea with the endangered Killer Whales. Our bodies face the same cumulative risks of environmental toxins and the harms of objectification, yet we both survive and are revived by the cumulative benefits of matrilineal wisdom, tradition and community. Our brilliance and wellness is entwined with the need for healthy and protected social and natural ecosystems.”

Join Keith, along with 6 other local poets, who will perform original pantoums developed through workshops facilitated by Keith over the last few months as part of her larger project, Womxn & Whales First, Poetry in a Climate of Change. After the reading, Keith and the other poets will hold a conversation with the digital audience.

The event is presented in partnership with The Seattle Public Library Foundation, the Office of Arts & Culture, and Seattle City of Literature. This event is supported by the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times.

We can provide accommodations for people with disabilities at Library events. Please contact leap@spl.org at least seven days before the event to request accommodations. Captions are available for all recorded Library programs.

Words, Writers and Southwest Stories: Ron Marshall: “Hunger Immortal: The First Thirty Years of the West Seattle Food Bank” @ Online (see listing)
Apr 8 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is excited to announce that it is hosting Ron Marshall for a live Zoom presentation on Thursday, April 8 at 6:00 PM. Marshall will deliver a presentation entitled, “Hunger Immortal: The First Thirty Years of the West Seattle Food Bank.” Registration is required. Please register HERE.

The history of the West Seattle Food Bank is no ordinary story. It’s filled with intrigue and sadness, great dedication and mounds of lucky breaks. Ron will explore the story of the bank from its beginnings in 1983 and its ongoing efforts to meet the needs of a changing, growing community. Ron will also provide a glimpse into both the history of the food bank and profiles of the individuals, including board members, volunteers, donors, and property owners, who worked to guarantee that the food bank had a permanent home.

Ron Marshall has served on the West Seattle Food Bank board since 1996. He’s past president of the West Seattle Ministerial Association and has served on the board of Music Northwest for over twenty-five years.

Ron has been the pastor of First Lutheran Church of West Seattle since 1979. He was raised in Tacoma and graduated from Stadium High School in 1967, and graduated from Washington State University in 1971. Ron is the author of two books on the religious thought of Martin Luther and Søren Kierkegaard. He’s also well known for his unique, on-going class on the Koran, which he has been teaching four times a year since 2003.

This series is open to hosting any author or 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.

‘Words, Writers & Southwest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is offered in partnership with The Southwest Seattle Historical Society and The Seattle Public Library.

West Seattle SkyLink presentation (times vary) @ online
Apr 12 all-day

When the pandemic ends and the bridge reopens, West Seattle’s traffic problems will still be with us.

Increased growth and commerce mean continued congestion regardless of whether you drive or take a bus. Light rail was supposed to provide a fast, reliable public transit option – but it won’t be here for at least a decade.

SkyLink would offer the same fast, reliable transit as light rail –as soon as 2025! SkyLink would save $2 billion and cause far less disruption and displacement to build. And it could connect as many as 55,000 riders per day to Link stations in Seattle enabling quick, predictable trips to destinations like Bellevue, Redmond, UW, and SeaTac – often in less time than driving. That would help relieve congestion on our roadways!

We invite you to learn more about SkyLink and why it is better for West Seattle. Join
us for a virtual presentation and Q&A at one of the following times:

Please register to attend.

Monday, April 12 7-8 pm

David B. Williams And Mary Ann Gwinn Discuss “Homewaters” @ Online (see listing)
May 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join us for a conversation about the human and natural histories in, on, and around Puget Sound. Click here to register via EventBrite.

David B. Williams will discuss his new book Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound with Mary Ann Gwinn.

The event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company and University of Washington Press. This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Not far from Seattle skyscrapers live 150-year-old clams, more than 250 species of fish, and underwater kelp forests as complex as any terrestrial ecosystem. For millennia, vibrant Coast Salish communities have lived beside these waters dense with nutrient-rich foods, with cultures intertwined through exchanges across the waterways. Transformed by settlement and resource extraction, Puget Sound and its future health now depend on a better understanding of the region’s ecological complexities.

Focusing on the area south of Port Townsend and between the Cascade and Olympic mountains, Williams uncovers human and natural histories in, on, and around the Sound. In conversations with archaeologists, biologists, and tribal authorities, Williams traces how generations of humans have interacted with such species as geoducks, salmon, orcas, rockfish, and herring. He sheds light on how warfare shaped development and how people have moved across this maritime highway, in canoes, the mosquito fleet, and today’s ferry system. The book also takes an unflinching look at how the Sound’s ecosystems have suffered from human behavior, including pollution, habitat destruction, and the effects of climate change.

Witty, graceful, and deeply informed, Homewaters weaves history and science into a fascinating and hopeful narrative, one that will introduce newcomers to the astonishing life that inhabits the Sound and offers longtime residents new insight into and appreciation of the waters they call home.

West Seattle SkyLink presentation (times vary) @ online
May 4 all-day

When the pandemic ends and the bridge reopens, West Seattle’s traffic problems will still be with us.

Increased growth and commerce mean continued congestion regardless of whether you drive or take a bus. Light rail was supposed to provide a fast, reliable public transit option – but it won’t be here for at least a decade.

SkyLink would offer the same fast, reliable transit as light rail –as soon as 2025! SkyLink would save $2 billion and cause far less disruption and displacement to build. And it could connect as many as 55,000 riders per day to Link stations in Seattle enabling quick, predictable trips to destinations like Bellevue, Redmond, UW, and SeaTac – often in less time than driving. That would help relieve congestion on our roadways!

We invite you to learn more about SkyLink and why it is better for West Seattle. Join
us for a virtual presentation and Q&A at one of the following times:

Words, Writers and Southwest Stories: David Williams: “Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound” @ Online (see listing)
May 13 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is excited to announce that it is hosting David Williams for a live Zoom presentation on Thursday, May 13 at 6:00 PM. Williams will be interviewed by series chair Dora-Faye Hendricks about his book, “Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound.” Registration is required. Please register HERE.

Focusing on the area south of Port Townsend and between the Cascade and Olympic mountains, Williams uncovers human and natural histories in, on, and around the Sound. In conversations with archaeologists, biologists, and tribal authorities, Williams traces how generations of humans have interacted with such species as geoducks, salmon, orcas, rockfish, and herring. He sheds light on how warfare shaped development and how people have moved across this maritime highway, in canoes, the mosquito fleet, and today’s ferry system. The book also takes an unflinching look at how the Sound’s ecosystems have suffered from human behavior, including pollution, habitat destruction, and the effects of climate change.

David B. Williams is a naturalist, author, and educator. His many books include the award-winning Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography and Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City.

This series is open to hosting any author or speaker addressing historical issues relating to the Puget Sound/Duwamish Peninsula and/or the general public.

“Washington Remembers: From Marcus Whitman to Billy Frank, Jr – Stories of Washington Statues and Memorials” @ Online (see listing)
May 21 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Free online presentation by historian and author Judy Bentley, hosted by the Woman’s Century Club as part of their May Program Meeting. Open to the public.

To get login information for the zoom program, register on this page: http://www.womanscenturyclub.org/meetings-events/

While walking the sidewalks of Washington cities to research her book, Walking Washington History, Judy Bentley came across some surprising memorials to the past: statues honoring George Washington, Mother Joseph, Abraham Lincoln, Spanish-American War veterans, Wendy the Welder, Dirty Dan, and Jimi Hendrix. She also found a fish story, a boat of discovery, wreaths commemorating Wobblies, and a fruit-picker’s basket.

All of these public sculptures honor some event or person a city wishes to remember or honor. Who decides who should be honored? Whose history is told? Bentley will take listeners on a tour of city statues and memorials and discuss how and why they came to be in public spaces, how history the public values has been set in stone.

This topic is particularly timely now that Washington State is moving to replace a statue of Marcus Whitman in the U.S. Statuary Hall in the capitol in D.C. with a monument to Native rights activist Billy Frank, Jr.

About the presenter: Judy Bentley taught literature, composition, and Pacific Northwest History at South Seattle College for more than 20 years. She is the author of more than fifteen books, including two guidebooks. The second edition of Hiking Washington’s History, the greater outdoors complement to Walking Washington History, will be published this spring.

Lynda Mapes And Guests Discuss “Orca: Shared Waters, Shared Home” @ Online (see listing)
Jun 1 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join us for a conversation about the history and the future of Orca whales in Puget Sound. Registration required. Click here to register via EventBrite.

This panel conversation will include Jay Julius, former Chairman, Lummi Nation; Deborah Giles, Orca scientist at UW Center for Conservation Biology and Science Director of Wild Orca and Jason Colby, Chairman of the History Department at University of Victoria and author of Orca.

The event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company, Mountaineers Books and The Seattle Times. This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation. This event will be recorded for SPL’s YouTube Channel.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

In Orca: Shared Waters, Shared Home journalist Lynda V. Mapes explores the natural history of the orca and the unique challenges for survival of the Southern Resident group that frequents Puget Sound. These whales are among the most urban in the world, a focus of researchers, tourists, and politicians alike. Once referred to as “blackfish” and still known as “killer whales,” orcas were for generations regarded as vermin to be avoided or exterminated, then later were captured live for aquariums all over the world. With greater exposure, scientists realized how intelligent the mammal is and are learning about their matriarchal family groups, vocalizations, behavior, and different subspecies. Today only 74 Southern Resident whales are left, and they are threatened by habitat degradation, lack of Chinook salmon (their primary food source), relentless growth, and climate change. Can we reverse the trend?

This special project, co-published with the Pulitzer Prize winning Seattle Times newspaper, features stunning imagery by Times photographer Steve Ringman, as well as from partner organizations including The Whale Museum, NOAA, and Center for Whale Research.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

LYNDA V. MAPES is a journalist, author, and close observer of the natural world. The Seattle Times has made a point of focusing on environmental issues for its readership; Lynda has been a key part in this effort, covering natural history, environmental topics and issues related to Pacific Northwest indigenous cultures. Her writing connects ordinary people and nature. In 1997, while working at the Spokesman Review in Spokane, Washington, she was awarded the Gerald Loeb award for a series on salmon recovery efforts in the Columbia Basin. It was the first time anyone looked at what the region had spent on recovery in the basin and what had resulted from those efforts. In addition to her newspaper career, she is the author of two books, Washington: The Spirit of the Land and Breaking Ground. Her first extended encounter with the Elwha ecosystem, dams, Port Angeles community and Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, this latter book laid an important groundwork of sources for reporting the forthcoming newspaper series and this proposed book on the Elwha. She lives in Seattle with her husband Douglas MacDonald.

Born and raised at Lummi Nation in Bellingham, Washington, Jay Julius spent a number of years in California as a professional golfer, speaker, and entrepreneur before returning home to Lummi. He has served as Chair of, and on Council at, Lummi Nation; has organized and executed Tribal, local, regional, and national campaigns. During his time on Lummi Nation’s Council, Jay led the Sovereignty and Treaty Protection Office; saw the launch of the Nation’s Salish Sea Campaign; sounded the alarm for the clean-up of the fish farm disaster; instigated the acquisition of culturally and economically significant lands; and was deeply involved in the fight against the proposed coal port at Xwe’chi’eXen/Cherry Point. He currently works as a strategic advisor and executive coach through Julius Consulting LLC.

Dr. Deborah Giles serves as the Science & Research Director for Wild Orca, and as a Research Scientist at the University of Washington—monitoring the Southern Resident killer whales’ health through non-invasive sampling with Eba, her highly-trained poop detection dog.

Jason M. Colby is associate professor of environmental and international history at the University of Victoria. Born in Victoria, British Columbia, and raised in the Seattle area, he worked as a commercial fisherman in Alaska and Washington State. He is the author of The Business of Empire: United Fruit, Race, and US Expansion in Central America.

‘From Stonewall to Seattle: The History of Pride on the Duwamish Peninsula and Beyond’ @ Online (see listing)
Jun 17 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is excited to host “From Stonewall to Seattle: The History of Pride on the Duwamish Peninsula and Beyond,” a live Zoom presentation and panel discussion on Thursday, June 17 at 6:00 PM. Join us for an historical presentation discussing the history of Pride and the LGBTQIA+ community on the national and local levels. Attendees will also hear from panelists Stacy Bass-Walden, founder of Alki Beach Pride, Aleksa Manila, a drag artist and social activist, and Oliver Webb of the Diversity Alliance of the Puget Sound. Registration is required.

Advance registration is required. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link to the program on June 17. Please register HERE.

The Stonewall Uprising wasn’t the first protest against police raiding of gay clubs and LGBTQ+ spaces, but it’s often the first that comes to mind when we think of Pride today. We’ll dive deeper into one of the catalysts for the contemporary LGBTQ+ rights movement that spread from Stonewall to Seattle and beyond. We’ll also explore how Pride is commemorated today on the Duwamish Peninsula not only in June, but all year round.

The program will consist of a 20-minute presentation facilitated by Maggie Kase, curator of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, followed by a 30-minute panel discussion, and an opportunity for an audience Q&A.

Registration is required. Please register HERE today.

Presentation: “Redlining in Seattle – Mapping Inequality” @ Online (see listing)
Jul 27 @ 7:00 pm

From the 34th District Democrats:

Ubax Gardheere will present a program “Redlining in Seattle – Mapping Inequality” to help members of the 34th Dems and the community at large learn the history behind this topic. For most of its history Seattle was a segregated city, as committed to white supremacy as any location in America. People of color were excluded from most jobs, most neighborhoods and schools, and many stores, restaurants, hotels, and other commercial establishments, even hospitals. As in other western states, the system of severe racial discrimination in Seattle targeted not just African Americans but also Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, people of Mexican ancestry, and also, at times, Jews. Join us.

Better Performance and Recovery with Bemer @ West Seattle Runner - times vary
Aug 3 all-day

BETTER PERFORMANCE & RECOVERY WITH BEMER

Come and learn more about PEMF device, Bemer, from Kelly Bielat, coming from Nevada for our athletes. On Tuesday @ 6 pm, she will discuss how Bemer helps athletes and overall health. You will be able to use the Bemer during the event and schedule more free sessions on it for the week. (We recommend booking a free session before or after a run or workout to see the effects. You have the option to do so on Tuesday Aug 3, Wednesday Aug 4 or Thursday Aug 5).

On Wednesday night, Aug 4th, we have run group at 6:15 pm. Come early to use Bemer before your run or use it afterward for recovery.

Bemer is used by sports teams, like the San Francisco 49ers and individual endurance athletes at the top of their game. BEMER is designed to improve circulation thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes. Blood is the body’s universal means of transportation. Oxygen, nutrients, chemical messengers (e.g., hormones) and immune cells are all transported through our blood. When our body’s cells, tissues and organs are adequately nourished and metabolic waste products are removed, our bodies maintain a healthy balance and function properly. The optimal regulation of circulation is a prerequisite for ensuring good levels of health and fitness.

Here is a video to watch now for more info.

In sum, Bemer increases blood flow at the capillary level and helps rid the cells of toxins. As we know, these are key aspects of recovery, aiding in performance.

While our focus at the shop is on athletes, Bemer is used with many health conditions. If you are interested in scheduling an individual session or have more questions about the event, please email: lori@westseattlerunner.com
