Benefit cider sales @ South Lincoln Park/Fauntleroy ferry line
Apr 24 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

To raise money and support Immigrant Families Together, students and parents from the Taproot School have been selling lemonade (summer) and Hot Cider (by donation) to ferry travelers and park goers since school began in September. They gather in front of the southern Lincoln Park parking lot, with mobile sellers to catch those in line. All proceeds go to Immigrant Families Together and all supplies have been donated or created by the students and families.

So far this year, the Taproot school sold lemonade for the cause, raising $1,000 from generous West Seattle/Vashon/Southworth travellers in August and $546 from Hot Cider in October. There was a smaller crew in December who raised over $100 during the holiday break. Our enthusiasm continues as we have now organized for a regular series of Hot Cider/Lemonade sales to keep this incredible organization and cause top of mind. We are hoping the warm cider and excited kids will continue to raise awareness, spirits and funds and encourage people to turn out to support the school’s efforts.

Who: Taproot School Students & Families
What: Hot Cider Stand (mobile and stationary) – (Lemonade in warmer months)
Where: Based out of the South Lincoln Park Parking Lot
When:
Friday, January 24

Why: To raise funds to donate to Immigrant Families Together
Call to Action: We encourage West Seattle/Vashon/Southworth ferry travelers and Lincoln Park goers to support out students in raising money for Immigrant Families Together.

Immigrant Families Together is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization working to keep families together by providing bond money for parents, legal services, safe housing, clothing, food, cellphones among other vital services to help families have the best possible chance at receiving asylum. For more information about how to help immigrant families stay together or to donate directly, please go (here).

WA State Book Awards: Eric Scigliano And “The Big Thaw” @ Online (see listing)
Feb 17 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

The Washington Center for the Book and the Washington Library Association present an evening with Eric Scigliano. Registration required. Click here to register.

Winner of the 2020 Washington State Book Award for General Nonfiction, The Big Thaw: Ancient Carbon, Modern Science, and a Race to Save the World offers readers a chance to meet a diverse team of scientists and students who have been studying the permafrost and what lies beneath. This vast store of ancient carbon, more than four times the quantity found in all of today’s forests, is releasing carbon dioxide and methane as the permafrost thaws. The release of all this carbon would alter Earth’s climate forever. Braving endless hordes of mosquitoes, quicksand, and extreme temperatures, researchers are racing against the clock to educate us all about the changes we must make in order to preserve Earth’s carbon balance. The book includes stunning photographs by Chris Linder and was published by Braided River, the conservation imprint of Mountaineers Books.

“An antidote to the depression and helplessness many feel in the face of climate change. In its splendid design, well-written text, and revealing photos of the Arctic world and those who probe the impact of thawing permafrost on the climate, this book perfectly captures this critical issue and those who are meeting the challenge.” ― Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Eric Scigliano is a journalist and author with a longtime interest in climate change, the Arctic, and the alarming intersection between the two. He has been a science writer at the University of Washington and a staff writer and editor at several newspapers and magazines, and has written for National Geographic, New Scientist, Discover, Harper’s, Technology Review. His work has won Livingston and American Association for the Advancement of Science awards and has been included in Best American Science Writing.

This event is presented by the Washington Center for the Book (a partnership of The Seattle Public Library and the Washington State Library) and the Washington Library Association. The event is free and will be presented on Zoom. Registration is required to receive the event link. The event will be recorded and can be accessed on SPL’s YouTube channel.

View in catalog: The Big Thaw by Eric Scigliano

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.

‘Here for the Beer’ @ online
Feb 26 @ 5:30 pm

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is delighted to announce “Here for the Beer! How Craft Beer Has Shaped Seattle’s Community Identity,” a live Zoom presentation and panel discussion on Friday, February 26 at 5:30 PM. Join us for a presentation mapping out the history of craft beer in Seattle, and hear from local favorites The Good Society, Future Primitive Brewing, and Elliott Bay Brewing Company as to what makes beer on the Duwamish Peninsula so unique. Registration is required.

Craft brewing hit the beer market for the first time in the 1980s, and since then has revolutionized the way that beer is produced and sold in the United States. The Pacific Northwest quickly became a hub for great beer, and today Seattle is especially known for its local breweries in every neighborhood. We’ll explore a brief history of craft beer in the Pacific Northwest with Maggie Kase, the Programs and Interpretation Coordinator at the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. Then, we’ll zoom in on the Duwamish Peninsula to hear firsthand why beer is such a big part of Seattleites’ sense of community identity, and what makes beer in West Seattle and White Center so special.

Thank you to our partners The Good Society, Future Primitive Brewing, and Elliott Bay Brewing Company for making this program possible.

For more details and to register, please visit our website or contact Maggie at programs@loghousemuseum.org.
