Humanities Washington: Llyn De Danaan and "History in Your Backyard"

Join Harbor History Museum for the second in its 2016 lecture series. Thanks to a generous grant from Humanities Washington, we are pleased to offer a series of four engaging and entertaining speakers this year. 

On July 7th at 6:00pm, we will welcome Llyn De Danaan, a former professor of anthropology from Evergreen State College in Olympia. Passionate about history and storytelling, Llyn is the author of Katie Gale: A Coast Salish Woman’s Life on Oyster Bay, an extraordinary and true story of a pioneering Native woman. The book forms the foundation of her Speakers Bureau talk “History in your Backyard,” a discussion of how she discovered this local history and how you can uncover fascinating stories in your own community. Llyn's talk will be followed by a reception in the Museum Lobby with complimentary snacks and a cash bar. 

This event is FREE, but space is limited. Seats will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis the night of the talk. Doors open at 5:30pm, so make sure to arrive early to reserve a place. For questions about the event, contact Alphild Dick, Marketing & Events Coordinator, at or 253-858-6722 ext. 5.
