Be part of a TV studio audience at the Bellevue King County Library as host Terry Tazioli interviews these authors:
• Monday, May 24 @ 7pm: David Nicandri, "River of Promise: Lewis and Clark on the Columbia." Most narratives emphasize Lewis and Clark’s adventures through the Bitterroot Mountains, but say little about their travels west of there. 'River of Promise' shifts the focus to an essential goal of the explorers: to discover the headwaters of the Columbia and a water route to the Pacific Ocean.
• Monday, June 14 @ 7pm: Solveig Torvik, "The World's Best Place: Norway and the Norwegians." The United Nations says Norway is the world's best place to live. So what's it like to live there? Who are these people, and what are their civic and cultural values? An unblinking look at celebrated, and uncelebrated, aspects of this paradoxical socialist welfare state by a Norwegian-American journalist.
• Monday, June 21 @ 7pm: John Hughes, WA Secretary of State's Legacy Project. From former Gov. Booth Gardner to Yakima-Valley-farm-kid-turned-NASA-astronaut Bonnie Dunbar, the Washington Secretary of State Office’s John Hughes has now penned bios on close to a dozen Evergreen State citizens, chronicling their unique and compelling stories.
