Three years in the making, Historic Seattle debuts its 40th Anniversary project, a definitive illustrated history entitled Tradition and Change on Seattle’s First Hill: Propriety, Profanity, Pills, and Preservation. Program Director and General Editor Lawrence Kreisman will explain how the book came to be. Paul Dorpat, recipient of Historic Seattle’s 2010 Living Legacy Award, and author of the introduction, shares his pick from hundreds of photographic images that showcase First Hill over the past 150 years. Paul and chapter authors Lawrence Kreisman, Dotty DeCoster, Jacqueline Williams, Dennis Andersen, Luci J. Baker Johnson, and Brooke Best, are on hand to field questions and sign your copy. Proceeds from book sales support Historic Seattle programs.
