H2OMG! Making Sense of Water Scarcity in an Insecure World with Rachel Cardone. In this talk, participants learn about water scarcity and its effects both globally and at local levels here in Washington State. Participants are challenged to consider how they value water in its different uses, and explore whether taking an ethical approach to water issues changes how we manage and govern water on our increasingly thirsty and crowded planet.

 

Rachel Cardone has spent nearly 20 years working on water issues as an economist, writer, policy maker, philanthropist, and advisor to public, private, and non-profit organizations. Presented in cooperation with Humanities Washington.

Weird Washington with Jeff Davis

 

Ah, Washington: evergreens, coffee, rock, and rain. That’s pretty much it, right? Well, no. There is a whole lot of weird going on in our state. Washington is home to some of the weirdest travel destinations, scariest legends, and most colorful folks in the United States. Because there are so many odd and unusual tales, cemeteries, beasts, and people here, it took two authors to traverse the state to document it all. With cameras and notepads, and apples (of course) in hand, Jefferson Davis and Al Eufrasio boldly ventured the highways and byways, backroads and forests, shorelines and mountaintops to investigate all the state has to offer.  Jeff Davis will provide you with highlights from the book, and some behind the scenes reminiscences.
