Book launch for ‘Orca Rescue! The True Story of an Orphaned Orca Named Springer’ @ C&P Coffee
Oct 17 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Whale Trail founder and local author Donna Sandstrom‘s book Orca Rescue! The True Story of an Orphaned Orca named Springer was published this month by Kids Can Press.

The middle-grade nonfiction book tells the riveting story of how a young orca was discovered in Puget Sound – lost, alone and 300 miles away from home. Six months later, the 2-year-old orca was rescued, rehabilitated, and returned to her family on the north end of Vancouver Island.

It’s the first and so far only successful orca reunion in history. Almost twenty years later Springer is thriving, tending her two calves. And on the day the book was published, Oceanwise announced that she is expecting again!

The story is told as it happened, from Donna’s perspective as a community organizer on the project. Many of the events described in the book happened here, including Springer’s initial discovery by researcher Mark Sears, and a pivotal town meeting at the Hall at Fauntleroy.

The book is beautifully illustrated. Fact spreads are interspersed with the narrative, and learning resources include maps, matrilines,and a glossary. The book recently received a starred review in Kirkus Review, and is a selected pick by the Junior Library Guild.

Join Donna and other team members to celebrate the book’s publication, and Springer’s continued success. Books will be available to purchase on site from Paper Boat Booksellers. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Please bring proof of vaccination and wear a mask. We look forward to celebrating with you!

In this group, writers introduce themselves and are provided optional fiction, poetry and nonfiction prompts to work on for 60-70 minutes of sustained silent writing time, though they are more than welcome to work on their own projects instead. Small group breakout sessions at the end of our time together encourage participants to share and respond to work generated during the session, or just get to know the other writers in the group.

Alma García’s short fiction has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Kweli Journal and Bluestem, among others. She holds an MFA from the University of Arizona and has received numerous writing awards. Her novel is currently under consideration at several publishing houses.

Josephine Ensign Discusses ‘Skid Road: On The Frontier Of Health And Homelessness In An American City’ @ Online (see listing)
Oct 20 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Informed by her own lived experience of homelessness, and many years providing primary health care to homeless people, Ensign will discuss this complicated issue.

Patrons can register via Eventbrite here. Registration required.

The event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company. This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation and the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times. This event will be recorded, captioned and then posted on SPL’s YouTube channel after the event.

About the Book:

A compelling look at the historical roots of poverty and homelessness, the “worthy” and “unworthy” poor, and the role of charity health care and public policy in the United States.

Home to over 730,000 people, with close to four million people living in the metropolitan area, Seattle has the third-highest homeless population in the United States. In 2018, an estimated 8,600 homeless people lived in the city, a figure that does not include the significant number of “hidden” homeless people doubled up with friends or living in and out of cheap hotels. In Skid Road, Josephine Ensign digs through layers of Seattle history—past its leaders and prominent citizens, respectable or not—to reveal the stories of overlooked and long-silenced people who live on the margins of society.

The sometimes fragmentary tales of these people, their lives and deaths, are not included in official histories of a place. How, Ensign asks, has a large, socially progressive city like Seattle responded to the health needs of people marginalized by poverty, mental illness, addiction, racial/ethnic/sexual identities, and homelessness? Drawing on interviews and extensive research, Ensign shares a diversity of voices within contemporary health care and public policy debates.

A timely story in light of the ongoing health care reform debate, the affordable housing crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic, the stories from Skid Road illuminate issues surrounding poverty and homelessness throughout America.

One player of each team is selected as the team’s “spymaster”; the others are field operatives that guess the word the spymaster is trying to get them to find. Teams take turns being the spymaster. It’s easy and fun. No previous experience needed.
