On March 18th at 7 pm at St Mary’s Episcopal Church, 10630 Gravelly Lake Dr SW, the Lakewood Historical Society will be celebrating Women’s History Month by presenting a panel of local women writers. They will share what inspired them to pursue their careers and perhaps offer advice for those considering writing. The program is free and open to the public.
Headlining the list is Dorothy Wilhelm, noted Northwest media personality, humorist, author, journalist and host/producer of the TV series, My Home Town. The other writers are Nancy Covert, historian, author, journalist and major contributor for the Society’s quarterly newsletter; Carol Neufeld Stout, historian and author; Meg Justus, author and museum specialist who has produced the last three major exhibits for the Lakewood Museum; and Gary Emmons who will present his grandmother’s story. Even though Della Gould Emmons books were considered fiction, she did extensive research that brought to life the historic figures of Leschi and Sacagawea.
