Book Release — Waterway: The Story of Seattle’s Locks and Ship Canal

Wed. July 12, 2017 - Wed. July 12, 2017
7:00pm - 8:30pm

$10 - $15

Why does a city surrounded by water need another waterway? Find out what drove Seattle’s civic leaders to pursue the dream of a Lake Washington Ship Canal for more than 60 years and what role that canal has played in the region’s development over the past century. Historians Jennifer Ott and David Williams, author of Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography, explore how industry, transportation, and the very character of the city and surrounding region developed in response to the economic and environmental changes brought about by Seattle’s canal and locks.
