April 13th-Bookmarks & Landmarks 10am-12pm-At The Greater Kent Historical Museum.

Bookmarks & Landmarks is a book club event with a local, historical twist. Read the book, and then visit the historic site for a program including guest speakers, special tours and librarian-led book discussions. A limited number of boos will be available for checkout at the Kent Library, Burien Library, and Des Moines Library. This event is sponsored in part by SoCoCulture, 4Culture and the King County Library System. Slick as a Mitten: Ezra Meeker’s Klondike Enterprise, by Dennis M. Larson.

This book chronicles local pioneer Ezra Meeker’s experiences during a business in the Yukon that provisioned the miners with tons of canned goods and fresh vegetables grown and processed in the Green/White River Valley-and even today, you will find the Meeker name attached to local schools, streets and building. Read Slick as a Mitten in advance, then come to the Museum to join the discussion about how that get-rich-quick period in the Far North influenced development in our area.

Following the book talk, join us on a walking tour of historical downtown Kent, were you’ll see several buildings constructed with funds gained during the Klondike Gold Rush.

Wear good walking shoes and come dressed from the weather!

This is a two-hour program,
