Washington History - Beer in the Evergreen State

Hop into the history of Evergreen State brewing with author Michael F. Rizzo on Sunday, August 14th from 3-5pm at Loowit Brewing Company in downtown Vancouver. Brewing history touches every corner of Washington. When it was a territory, homesteader operations like Colville Brewery helped establish towns. In 1865, Joseph Meeker planted the state’s first hops in Steilacoom. Today, nearly three hundred breweries and brewpubs call Washington home. Author Michael F. Rizzo unveils the epic story of brewing in Washington in his new book Washington Beer: A Heady History of Evergreen State Brewing, and will be discussing history and more at this upcoming appearance. The book will be available for purchase, as will tasters of Loowit's craft brews. Loowit Brewing Company is located at 507 Columbia Street.

 

 

 

 

The Sunday Sessions

August 14th at 3pm with Jane Elder Wulff

Join us for The Sunday Sessions on August 14th at 3pm  for a mini workshop on The Art of Interviewing: Listening for Story. Jane Elder Wulff will walk you through the process of interviewing for your story. Come with questions, a passion for writing, & something to take notes with. These workshops are free & open to the public.


Jane Elder Wulff was born in Florida and lived in the South until age ten, when her family moved to Pullman,Washington. She attended Antioch College and Washington State University, and joined the Clark College faculty in 1967 with an M.A. in English and Creative Writing (the first such combined degree offered by WSU). After two years, teaching turned into one of many part-time jobs by which she supported her life’s work in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Since 1988 she has done this by working exclusively as a freelance writer for clients and regional publications. She is currently best known in Clark County as a longtime community and arts advocate and author of feature-length profiles for The Messenger, a monthly newspaper published by the City of Vancouver.

Who Picked this Book? Book Club will discuss My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry at their August meeting, on Sunday 8/21 at 3pm:

A charming, warmhearted novel from the author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove.
Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy as in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers crazy. She is also Elsa's best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother's stories, in the Land-of-Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas, where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.
When Elsa's grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa's greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother's instructions lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other.
