Town Hall Seattle says
Spokane-based author Jack Nisbet’s knowledge of Pacific Northwest history is well known. After authoring several books (including Sources of the River), his latest work Ancient Places offers a portrait of the region that is “a literary cabinet of curiosities.” From 15,000-year-old flood plains and Lewis and Clark’s famous expedition, to the biscuitroot found in the Blue Mountains and the Burke Museum’s Wes Wehr, Nisbet’s collection of essays outline the intertwined histories of the past, present, and future of the region. Appealing to local history buffs, newcomers, or anyone interested in learning more, his talk will uncover some hidden gems from his research, share his inspiration for writing the book, and make clear that “there’s so much to explore right here” in Washington. Nisbet will appear in conversation with John Marzluff, professor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington, and David Montgomery, former Town Hall Scholar in Residence/geologist, for this discussion of the book’s themes–geology (Montgomery), area fauna (Marzluff), and of course the human side to the story (Nisbet).
