Presented by Feliks Banel, local broadcaster and historian
Join local broadcaster and historian Feliks Banel for an
exploration of our region’s darkest weather days and most infamous storms. With
archival photos, radio, and TV clips, Banel takes us back in time to hear
stories of those who survived some of the worst Pacific Northwest weather in
Further, Banel explores how these storms can revive our shared
humanity. Frightening weather can bind communities together to share resources,
commiserate, and protect each other. Participants are encouraged to share their
own memories of how they survive being snowed in, washed out, or left without
power in the wake of a big storm—and why we remember those moments for the rest
of our lives.
About the Speaker:
Feliks Banel is a writer and producer, and serves as editor of COLUMBIA,
the quarterly magazine of the Washington State Historical Society. He has been
a host and contributor for KIRO Radio on matters of Northwest history and
culture for many years; he created the history series This NOT Just In
for KUOW Public Radio; and he produces documentaries for the Seattle Channel.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon, Washington and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
