March 14, 2012 (Wednesday) New Land, North of the Columbia. This program offers an illustrated travelogue of the history of Washington Territory and State, using Lorraine McConaghy's new book New Land, North of the Columbia (which features items from the Yakima Valley Museum) as its basis. The research project for New Land involved more than a year of travel throughout Washington State, from Walla Walla to Bellingham, Kelso to Newport, visiting public and university libraries, historical society archives, and federal, state, county, and municipal archives. The result is this documentary history of the place we call "Washington," from 1853 to the present day. This presentation is sponsored by Humanities Washington through their state-wide Speakers Bureau.
