Storm Warning: Historic Weather in the Evergreen State

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Brewster Library
Main Area
Local broadcaster and historian Feliks Banel explores our region's darkest weather days and most infamous storms. 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.

Further, Banel explores how these storms 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.

She Traveled Solo: Strong Women in the Early 20th Century

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Wenatchee Library
Orondo Street Meeting Room
During a 5,000 mile solo bicycle ride from southern California to Maine, Tessa Hulls heard the same thing daily: that a woman can't travel alone.

She began researching other women who traveled solo in different ways, and became fascinated with many in stories from the early 20th century: explorers, mountaineers, and even a circus performer - women who defied expectations and embarked on unprecedented journeys, but whose stories have remained largely untold. 

Using historical photographs, primary documents, and hand-drawn illustrations, Hulls takes participants into the lives of intrepid female adventurers who lived through the turn of the 20th century - before the right to vote or the right to own property. In sharing these stories and her own, Hulls illuminates the power of history in today's world and demonstrates why female role models are vital in affecting social change. 

Tessa Hulls is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and outdoorswoman who focuses on women's stories, and her writing has appeared in the Washington Post and Atlas Obscura's Kickass Women series. She is a frequent public lecturer and performer, and has appeared at the Seattle Art Museum, Washington Ensemble Theater, Annex Theater, and other locations.
