Puget Sound is a magnificent and intricate estuary, supporting an abundance of resident and migrating life, notably two iconic, interdependent endangered species: Southern Resident orcas and chinook salmon. Join Seattle Public Library for an evening celebrating a new multimedia book and campaign We Are Puget Sound: Discovering and Recovering the Salish Sea.
Join book contributors Mindy Roberts from Washington Environmental Council, writer David Workman and photographer Brian Walsh for a stunning visual journey through the complex web of marine and terrestrial wildlife, regional economies of fishing and agriculture, and through the lives of the people who call this place home. Also joining the event will be Sally Brownfield, educational advocate with the Squaxin tribe, and Darcie Larson from the Seattle Aquarium for a panel discussion and Q&A.
This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation author series sponsor Gary Kunis, and Seattle City of Literature. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times. The event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company and Mountaineers Books (Braided River). Books will be available for purchase at the event.
