Humanities Washington Presents: Washington on Wheels

As part of the Summer Reading Program, A Universe of Stories, The North Olympic Library System (NOLS) is partnering with Humanities Washington to present Washington on Wheels: Odd and Innovative Ideas from the Pacific Northwest. Harriet Baskas will speak on Thursday, July 11 at the Clallam Bay Branch Library at 3 p.m.

Though Boeing is the best-known innovator in travel to have emerged from Washington State, there are many others. From canoe journeys to flying cars (that actually worked!), explore the history and culture of travel in Washington State.

Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau presenter, author, and broadcaster Harriet Baskas takes audiences on a tour of notable highlights of state transportation history, examining not just how we get around, but why we travel and where we might be going next.

Audiences will be invited to share family stories of migration, memories of first flights and unforgettable car trips, and consider a future of autonomous cars and vacations in space.

Her books include Hidden Treasures: What Museums Can’t or Won’t Show You, Washington Icons: 50 Classic Views of the Evergreen State, and Washington Curiosities: Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat Stuff.
