Longfellow Creek celebration
Nov 5 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

From Seattle Parks:

Many community members, from organizations to individuals, work hard to keep Longfellow Creek healthy and accessible. Twenty-five years ago, two community plans laid out a vision for improved access to Longfellow creek. The Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail was developed by neighbors in partnership with government, businesses, non-profits, and schools. Formal tours and stewardship opportunities—like planting trees and monitoring water quality and salmon—provide hands-on connections to the Creek. Many schools in the area participate in arts, environmental education, and other programs along the Creek.

Longfellow Creek is a natural link among communities throughout Delridge, High Point, and Westwood neighborhoods. While many consider it a natural wonder, the Creek’s benefit to people, plants, and animals can be hidden from view. To bring light to Longfellow Creek’s contributions, the City of Seattle and community partners are hosting a celebration of the creek and we want you to join!

Celebrate 25+ years at the Creek

Bring your neighbors, friends, and family to celebrate over 25 years of community engagement with Longfellow Creek on November 5, 2017. The fun will kick off at the corner of 28th Ave SW and SW Dakota St* and run from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. All ages are encouraged to come participate in activities like exploring the Dragonfly Pavilion and Salmon Bone Bridge, caring for garden beds, creating a postcard inspired by Longfellow Creek, looking inside a salmon, and enjoying guided nature walks.

Please RSVP at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LongfellowCreek
Questions? Email Sheryl.Shapiro@Seattle.gov or call (206) 615-1443.
*In case of heavy rain, the celebration will be relocated to the Delridge Community Center (4501 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106).

Dragonfly Pavilion and Salmon Bone Bridge

Let your imagination soar when you see the giant salmon bones and 16-foot-tall dragonfly—two copper sculptures on the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail.

Postcards from the Creek

Meet your creek is an art project by Vaughn Bell, an artist who lives in the creek watershed. Create unique, hand-made postcards based on your observations and understanding of Longfellow Creek. You will get the chance to mail the postcard to a friend or loved one, or to donate it to the postcard archive which may be displayed in the community. Images of the postcards will be shared online at the Meet Your Creek blog.

Salmon: Look inside

You may know how a fish swims, but do you know how it eats, breathes, and reproduces? You’ll discover the swimming, eating, breathing, and reproducing systems—and you can touch them (if you want to)!

Nature Walk

Local naturalists will guide you through the park and open spaces on a flat, wide trail. See and learn about the creek, salmon, and the wide variety of plants and their historical uses.

A reading by Steve Adelson ‘Apocalypse at Little Bighorn-The Demise of a Culture’ @ C&P Coffee Co.
Nov 8 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Veteran Park Ranger, author and documentary producer Steve Adelson presents a reading: “Apocalypse At Little Bighorn -The Demise Of A Culture”.

This coffee house presentation will examine the erosion of the native Sioux and Cheyenne culture that culminated at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, later to become legendarily know as “Custer’s Last Stand”. In reality, it was not only his last stand, but the last gasp of Indian resistance against Euro-American encroachment on the northern plains.

Adelson will be examining this epic confrontation and the characters and events that shaped this story. A story that still haunts the American consciousness even today.

The lives of Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Gall, Major Marcus Reno and Captain Frederick Benteen are some of the individuals highlighted in the discussion.

Adelson, a West Seattle graduate, is a prolific writer and his book “Little Bighorn; Voices From A Distant Wind” will be available for purchase. In addition, his documentary, “Contested Ground” is included with an autographed copy of the book.

Adelson has presented to thousands of visitors at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in southeast Montana. He has been a lecturer on the History Channel, C-Span, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel and other media productions.
You can examine his work at his website.

Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Dec 16-17, Alizah Olivas Trunk Show. Meet this local jewelry artist in person and select from fine silver and semi-precious stone necklaces and earrings.

Local jewelry artisan Alizah Olivas will be at CAPERS Dec 16, 10 am-6 pm and Dec 17, 9:30am-5pm, selling her beautiful silver and gemstone pieces – perfect for a special lady on your holiday list!

“Alizah’s pieces speak to so many of our customers,” said CAPERS owner Lisa Myers. “In fact, one of our clients snapped a photo of a beautiful silver necklace she wanted and sent her husband back to buy it for Christmas!”

A West Seattleite born and reared in White Center, Olivas began creating jewelry about 10 years ago. With support from her husband, family and friends, she has been learning and crafting jewelry ever since, attracting many collectors in the area.

“Whether it's a new gemstone I’ve found, a new shape I want to create, or a combination of the two, making each new piece is simply fun. If I’m smiling when I’m done with a piece, I’m hoping you’ll be smiling while wearing it,” said the proud lab owner of George and Gracie, who keep her company while she works.

Silver has always been Olivas’ favorite metal to wear and work with.

“The bright reflectiveness makes me happy and adding semi-precious stones only makes it better. Hopefully, my jewelry brings a brightness to your day,” shared Olivas.

Kerri Kokias reading during Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool Bookfair @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Jan 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

My picture book, Snow Sisters! came out with Knopf/Random House earlier this month. I have several West Seattle events/story times scheduled that I’m hoping you might help share with our community.

The first is at Barnes and Noble this Sunday, January 21st at 11:00am. It’s part of a book fair/fundraiser for Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool, where my children both attended school before moving on to elementary school at West Seattle Montessori. I will lead a winter themed story time and craft, and a portion of every game, book, or treat purchase will be donated to the school. Community members are encouraged to shop and support Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool through the weekend, even if they can’t make the story time. As long as we are promoting the book fair, and bringing in business to Barnes and Noble, it is not necessary for community members to be part of the school to help with this fundraiser. Simply share the book fair ID number 12310967 at checkout. And of course, everyone is welcome at the story time! https://stores.barnesandnoble.com/event/9780061910635-0

I will also be doing a story time at West Seattle Library on Wednesday, January 24th at 10:30 am and at Southwest Library on Thursday, February 15th at 10:30 am.

Snow Sisters! By Kerri Kokias and Teagan White
ISBN 97811019388836
Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: January 2, 2018

Just like snowflakes, no two sisters are alike, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work together to make the perfect snow day! A heartwarming sibling story.

When snowflakes fall, two sisters react very differently. One is excited and the other is wary. The first sister spends the morning outdoors, playing until she’s all tuckered out. Meanwhile, the second sister stays indoors, becoming ever more curious about the drifts outside. Soon, they switch places, and spend the second half of the day retracing each other’s footsteps. But each sister puts her own unique spin on activities like sledding, baking and building.

The simple mirrored text is spare and lovely, and each spread is split to show what each sister is doing independently–until at last they come together in the sweet, satisfying conclusion. LeUyen Pham’s Big Sister, Little Sister meets Kate Messner’s Over and Under the Snow.

Join trained volunteer Beach Naturalists at South Alki/Constellation Park on the following dates this year for a free guided exploration at very low tide.

Explore the beach during winter nighttime low tides with Beach Naturalist staff and volunteers. Discover what creatures we see on the beach at this time of year. Dress for the weather (bundle up!) and for tide pooling: boots, hats, gloves and a good flashlight are musts.

Sunday, January 28, 7 pm–9pm

Beach etiquette:
While on the beach, please remember:
~ Walk carefully; there’s life beneath your feet!
~ Touch gently with one wet finger.
~ Observe animals where they are and please avoid picking them up.
~ Please only move rocks that are small enough to be moved with one hand and return them to the position in which you found them.
~ Please only remove trash from the beach, nothing else. Many of our beaches are protected by law.

WordsWest Literary Series presents Elizabeth Bradfield and Lyanda Lynn Haupt @ C & P Coffee Company
Feb 21 @ 7:00 pm

“Loving the World from Starlings to Shorelines”
with Elizabeth Bradfield and Lyanda Lynn Haupt
Favorite Poem by Reading Partners Seattle
7:00 pm, Wednesday, February 21, 2018, C & P Coffee Company, 5612 California Ave. SW

Better than candy hearts, this February WordsWest Literary Series welcomes naturalists Elizabeth Bradfield and Lyanda Lynn Haupt for “Loving the World from Starlings to Shorelines,” an evening of crucial writing about our inner impulses and our relationships with the environment at large.

WordsWest Literary Series is grateful for grant funding from Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and Poets & Writers, Inc. that allows us to pay our writers for their time and talent.

Elizabeth Bradfield is the author of the poetry collections Once Removed, Approaching Ice, and Interpretive Work. Her poems and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, West Branch, Orion and many anthologies. She has been awarded a Stegner Fellowship, the Audre Lorde Prize, and was a finalist for the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets. Founder and editor-in- chief of Broadsided Press, she lives on Cape Cod, works as a naturalist locally as well as on expedition ships in the high latitudes, and teaches creative writing at Brandeis University.

Lyanda Lynn Haupt is a naturalist, eco-philosopher and speaker whose writing connects people with nature in their everyday lives. Her newest book is Mozart’s Starling. Lyanda’s previous books include Crow Planet: Essential Wisdom from the Urban Wilderness, winner of the 2010 Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award, and Rare Encounters with Ordinary Birds, winner of the 2002 Washington State Book Award. Her writing has also appeared in Utne, LA Times, Image, and other publications. Lyanda has created educational programs for Seattle Audubon and researched seabirds in the remote tropical Pacific. She lives in Seattle with her husband, daughter, and Carmen the starling.

Every third Wednesday, 7pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month a community member from a local, independent business shares his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On February 21st, we welcome a favorite poem from Reading Partners Seattle, which mobilizes volunteers to provide students at under-resourced schools with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by fourth grade.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw, and this season’s intern/co-curator is Joannie Stangeland.

Najette, a bewitching painter, but their relationship hangs in the balance as his myth balloons out of all proportion. At the centre of the hype and spin stands the demon-like publicist Ryan Rees, whose power enables him to manufacture the truth, and the story builds to an unforgettable, startling climax…

Favorite Poem & Summer Reading Table by Page 2 Books
6:00 pm, Wed., June 20, 2018, C & P Coffee Co., 5612 California Ave. SW

SPECIAL KIDS NIGHT 6 PM START TIME

Kick off school’s end and the start of summer reading season with acclaimed authors Suzanne Selfors and Dana Simpson in a magical evening for kids and the adults they bring with them.

Suzanne Selfors is a national best-selling author who writes for kids of all ages. She’s received five Junior Library Guild awards and earned starred reviews from Kirkus, School Library Journal, Library Media Connection and Publisher’s Weekly. The Sasquatch Escape won the WA State Book Award and was an Amazon Best Children’s Book. Suzanne’s most recent books are Wedgie and Gizmo vs. the Toof (2018) from Harper Collins/Katherine Tegan Publishers and Spirit Riding Free: Lucky and the Mustangs of Miradero (2017) from DreamWorks/Little Brown. The animated series, Spirit Riding Free, is on Netflix. Though her books can be found all over the world, Suzanne lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest where she hopes it is her destiny to write stories forever after.

Dana Claire Simpson, a native of Gig Harbor, Washington, first caught the eyes of devoted comics readers with the internet strip Ozy and Millie. After winning the 2009 Comic Strip Superstar contest, she developed the strip Phoebe and Her Unicorn (originally known as Heavenly Nostrils), which is now syndicated in over 200 newspapers worldwide. There are five book collections: Phoebe and Her Unicorn, Unicorn on a Roll, Unicorn vs. Goblins, Razzle Dazzle Unicorn, and Unicorn Crossing, and a graphic novel, The Magic Storm. Simpson’s books have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list, and have won the Washington State Book Award and the Pacific Northwest Book Award. She lives with her husband and her cat in Santa Barbara, California.

The Favorite Poem Project, a vital part of WordsWest’s monthly literary events, invites a community member to share a favorite poem and information about his or her organization. On June 20, we welcome the Summer Reading Table and a favorite poem read by Jenny Cole from indie bookstore Page 2 Books.

WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw, and this season’s intern/co-curator is Joannie Stangeland. Grant funding from Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and Poets & Writers, Inc. allows WordsWest to pay featured writers for their time and talent.

‘Waiting to Derail’ Book Reading and Signing with Thomas O’Keefe – Free & All-Ages @ Easy Street Records
Aug 3 @ 7:00 pm

At Easy Street Records in The Junction:

Long before the Grammy nominations, sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall, and Hollywood friends and lovers, Ryan Adams fronted a Raleigh, North Carolina, outfit called Whiskeytown. Lumped into the burgeoning alt-country movement, the band soon landed a major label deal and recorded an instant classic: Strangers Almanac. That’s when tour manager Thomas O’Keefe met the young musician. For the next three years, Thomas was at Ryan’s side: on the tour bus, in the hotels, backstage at the venues. Packed with behind-the-scenes road stories, and, yes, tales of rock star debauchery, Thomas O’Keefe’s new book, “Waiting to Derail: Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown, Alt Country’s Brilliant Wreck” provides a firsthand glimpse into Ryan Adams at the most meaningful and mythical stage of his career. Join us for a special author reading & signing event on 8/3. Free & all ages!

25th anniversary of The Boot @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Aug 9 @ 6:00 pm

Each summer, a new group of young writers hones their craft through Southwest Youth & Family Services’ innovative program called Young Writers Workshop or “The Boot.” The program is designed for youth who may be low income or immigrants to express themselves and share their experiences of family, loss, hardship and love through poetry and verse.

“Poetry is my alliance. Not only speaking but creating, together penetrating that blank spot in your mind, the doubt…”
– Poetry by Puao Savusa, The Boot – 2011

But The Boot, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is much more than a poetry workshop. The ten-week intensive writing program allows students to earn high school credit for their participation and to receive a stipend for their work. This is made possible with funding from the City of Seattle Summer Youth Employment Program and the Department of Education and Early Learning.

The poems and short stories they write are then published and presented to their family, friends, and community. When The Boot began in 1993 it established that, “The Boot [magazine] is for, by and about youth. Featuring poetry, essays and short stories, the writers and editorial staff, most of whom are high school dropouts, focus their work around personal experiences and life on the ‘streets.’ ” The name was originally chosen by participants since they felt they had been “booted” out of school. The classroom where the workshop still take place has held moments of laughter and moments of silence to honor students who were lost.

On August 9th, 2018, Southwest Youth & Family Services will host a night of poetry and storytelling by the 2018 Boot writers and honor the history of the program as presented by the founding facilitator, Andrew Epstein and past participants. Doors open at 6pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW). Although the event is free, SWYFS asks guests to register at https://bit.ly/2m4R51I

Haunted Hike

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Ethical Trade Sale @ Walmesley Center

Our Lady of Guadalupe’s annual Catholic Relief Services Ethical Trade Sale is coming up on Sunday, November 18 from 9:30 am-1:00 pm in the Walmesley Center (7000 35th Ave SW).

We live in an era of unprecedented economic interdependence. Ethical Trade seeks to change the ways in which conventional trade often leaves behind the most vulnerable people. By buying Ethical Trade, you support the efforts of skilled farmers and artisans working to break the cycle of poverty and to build stronger communities. Employers also assure that workers are treated with dignity and that forced labor is not part of the supply chain.

At the sale, you’ll find unique gift items, including chocolates, Advent calendars, nativities, crosses, holiday and home décor, scarves, ornaments, baskets, and much more. In addition to Ethical Trade items, you’ll find: holiday cards from Noel House (a Catholic Community Services shelter for homeless women), tasty treats sold by the Pre-K and 3rd grade classes to benefit WestSide Baby, Tanzanian rosaries and batiks items from Maryknoll, Catholic lip and beard balms benefiting youth ministry, Purpose Jewelry made by women who escaped Human Trafficking, and Olivewood Items from the Holy Land. While you browse, be sure to sample free Fair Trade coffee provided by Pura Vida.

Proceeds go to Catholic Relief Services and OLG’s efforts to bring Fair Trade coffee and tea to our events.

Southwest Stories: Washington At War – The Evergreen State In World War I @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Nov 18 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Presented by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society:

Public historian Lorraine McConaghy offers a “Readers’ Theater,” where audience members participate in reading a script out aloud on “Washington at War: The Evergreen State in World War I.”

Lorraine McConaghy begins the program with an illustrated introduction to the war’s themes before offering a “Readers’ Theater,” a script that is read aloud together, allowing participants to speak the history they are discovering. The script includes excerpts from newspapers, diaries, writings, speeches and correspondence, and is based on extensive research in primary source material focused on the war’s impact on Washington – and how Washington impacted the war. The reading covers the period 1914-1919. Lorraine will tailor her remarks to West Seattle, on the Great War home front.

Lorraine McConaghy is a public historian. At the Museum of History & Industry and Washington State History Museum, her work as historian and curator has dealt with Washington at war during the Treaty War of 1855-56, the Civil War, World War I, and World War II.

This talk is presented by Humanities Washington, the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, and The Seattle Public Library. It is part of Southwest Stories, a series offering monthly presentations on the history of West Seattle and the Duwamish Peninsula on the third Sundays at the five branches in West Seattle.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

Seattle Stand Down Event for Homeless and At-Risk Veterans @ South Seattle College Georgetown Campus
Dec 13 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm

South Seattle College’s Georgetown Campus will host the eighth annual Seattle Stand Down on Dec. 13 and Dec. 14, where homeless and at-risk veterans and their families will be offered free access to a wide array of resources and services.

The Seattle Stand Down, a volunteer team of veterans dedicated to supporting veterans experiencing homelessness, is a one-stop shop for resources and services available to veterans who currently lack permanent housing or simply need a “hand up” in order to prevent homelessness.

Representatives from local businesses, non-profits, educational institutions, and all levels of government will be on hand with volunteers to provide medical screenings, eye exams, dental services, legal aid, employment opportunities, housing assistance, case management referrals, haircuts, personal hygiene items and meals.  The two-day event will also offer employment assistance and legal resources.

Services and resources will be provided at the Gene Colin Education Hall – Bldg C, 6737 Corson Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98108. Parking passes will be made available to veterans receiving services.

The Seattle Stand Down is unique from other stand down events in that it has a separate area designated for women where they can feel safe and comfortable. Providers will offer services specifically for women veterans including health care, advocacy, counseling, employment and personal care.

The Seattle Stand Down was founded as a community service project of student veterans at Seattle Central College. The Seattle Colleges District has hosted the event since its inception eight years ago.  Major funding for the Seattle Stand Down has been made possible through a Veterans Employment and Training Service grant from the U.S. Department of Labor as well as additional funding through the King County Veterans Program, funded by the Veteran, Seniors and Human Services Levy.

Southwest Stories: Tengu Fishing Club @ Delridge Library
Dec 16 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Presented by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society:

At the Delridge Library: Join us for an interview with Mas Tahara, featuring fish-tales of the “Tengu Fishing Club.”

The “Tengu Fishing Club” was founded by one of several Japanese-American tackle shops located in downtown Seattle. One particular shop started a salmon fishing competition, later called the “Tengu Fishing Club” around 1936-1937. Fishing competitions like this were common at this time but the Japanese-American population wasn’t welcomed during the typical salmon fishing season in the spring or summer. They began their own tradition, with the distinct difference of welcoming any participants. Held during the cold winter months of November through January, each weekend of the competition would document who had caught the largest fish, and the ultimate winner was chosen at the end of the 12-week period.

Mas Tahara is a longtime Seattle resident and former University of Washington microbiology researcher. He chaired the “Tengu Fishing Club” for over 40 years and published a book about his experiences called “Tengu – Tales Told by Fishermen and Women of The Tengu Club of Seattle.”

Presented in partnership with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society as part of its Southwest Stories series offering presentations on the history of West Seattle and the Duwamish Peninsula.

WordsWest Event with Writers E. J. Koh and Juan Carlos Reyes @ C & P Coffee Co.
Jan 16 @ 7:00 pm

What is truly “new” in the New Year? How much of our optimism or pessimism for what’s to come has to do with what’s happening now, and how much has to do with unresolved collisions? On January 16, 2019, writers E. J. Koh and Juan Carlos Reyes wrestle with “Past and Future Selves”: the intangible apparitions that haunt our everyday lives.

E. J. Koh is the author of A Lesser Love, winner of the Pleiades Editors Prize, and her memoir The Magical Language of Others is forthcoming from Tin House Books. Her work has appeared in Academy of American Poets, Boston Review, Columbia Review, Los Angeles Review of Books, and Prairie Schooner. She received fellowships from The American Literary Translators Association, Kundiman, The MacDowell Colony, Vermont Studio Center, and elsewhere. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

Juan Carlos Reyes has published the novella A Summer’s Lynching (Quarterly West) and the fiction chapbook Elements of a Bystander (Arcadia Press). His stories, poems and essays have appeared in Ascentos Review, KGB Lit, and Hawai’i Review, among others. He is a 2018 Jack Straw Writers Fellow and is currently an Assistant Professor of creative writing at Seattle University. He is also the chief editor at Big Fiction magazine. He is the recipient of the Artist Trust 2018 LaSalle Storyteller Award in Fiction.

The Favorite Poem Project, a vital part of WordsWest’s monthly literary events, invites a community member to share a favorite poem and information about his or her organization. On January 16th, we welcome a favorite poem from Fawn Coussens, MSPT, owner and physical therapist at Kinetic Physical Therapy, located one block south of the West Seattle Junction.


WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. Grant funding from Poets & Writers, Inc. allows WordsWest to pay featured writers for their time and talent.

Jan 17 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Alzheimer’s Association men’s caregiver support groups provide a place for male caregivers to learn and gain support from other male caregivers who are also on a unique journey of providing care to a person with memory loss. Support groups also serve as an opportunity for participants to receive information on care management, available services, and current research and treatment options.

A free support group for unpaid male care partners of individuals with memory loss is held the 3rd Thursday of each month from 1:00–2:30 pm at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Burien, Washington.

Contact facilitator Gerry Crouch at 206-632-3985 for details.

Words, Writers, West Seattle: Betsy Bell @ Southwest Library
Feb 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us to hear Betsy Bell read from her chronicle, “Open Borders: A Personal Story of Love, Loss and Anti-War Activism.”

Betsy Bell chronicles her personal journey during the 1980s as an anti-war activist and the activities of Target Seattle. In 1983, she travels to Tashkent, Seattle’s Sister City in Uzbekistan and discovers the power of people-to-people connections across political boundaries. She explores how ordinary citizens can be transformed into agents of peace.

A mother, grandmother, and businesswoman, Betsy Bell is a longtime justice activist. Reaching across boundaries that separate us from ‘The Other’ has been a constant thread in Betsy’s life. You can learn more about Betsy Bell by visiting her website.

This program is part of the Words, Writers & West Seattle series which features writers connected to the Duwamish Peninsula. Programs are held monthly on the second Thursday evenings. Books will be available for purchase. Presented in partnership with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

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.
