Community Program – Free
The Lynnwood-Alderwood Manor Heritage Association welcomes author Frederick L. Brown. Animals rarely appear in urban history books; but cows, horses, pigs, and chickens, dogs and cats, salmon and other wild creatures have played crucial roles in struggles over property and power in the changing city. They were never far from people’s minds as struggled over the land that is now Seattle, as they regulated urban spaces, and defined neighborhoods, as they strove for a better life, and debated what it meant to be city-dwellers. Join historian Fred Brown as he explores the hidden history of Seattle’s animal past, and how it may help us think about our animal present.
