Open Book - David B. Williams

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM



David B. Williams joins us to talk about Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound, which tells the long story of the Sound, tracing human history from the earliest records more than 12,500 years ago to present. Along the way, he discusses Native people, the arrival of explorers and settlers, and how the various inhabitants adapted to place. He also weaves in stories of the natural world, covering often overlooked species such as Olympia oysters, rockfish, geoduck, kelp, and herring, as well as the influence of salmon and orca on the Sound.

David is an author, naturalist, tour guide, and Curatorial Associate at the Burke Museum. He is also the author of the award-winning book Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, as well as Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City and Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology.


This event will be recorded for later viewing on the Sno-Isle Libraries YouTube channel, and will be available indefinitely.
