The Steilacoom Library Speaker Series continues on Friday, November 9 at 3:00 at the Steilacoom High School Library. Llyn De Danaan, author and cultural anthropologist, will explore our origins and how they help us define what it means to be human. De Danaan will examine recent finds that have altered our understanding of the past. She will lead us to consider what it will mean to be human in the future as new technologies challenge our intelligence and hard-won skills.
