The PNW Historian Guild is honored to have David Buerge speak about his new book, Chief Seattle and the Town that Took His Name.
Ames Library, Seattle Pacific University,
April 26, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Social hour starts at 7:00. Talk at 7:30.
Based on more that two decades of research, Buerge’s book is the first to tell a full story of Chief Seattle, his life, and his influence on Seattle. Without a doubt, the book is one of the most important contributions toward understanding the city’s complex racial history. It is a book every Seattleite should read. Buerge’s book is also the 2018 winner of the Virginia Marie Folkins Award for outstanding local history book. The award will be presented on April 24 by the Association of King County Historical Organizations.
