Speaker: David B. Williams, Freelance Writer and Public Speaker, Seattle, WA
David B. Williams is a freelance writer focused on the intersection of people and the natural world. His books include Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology and The Seattle Street-Smart Naturalist: Field Notes from the City. He has recently finished his next book, Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle's Topography, which will be published in 2015 by the University of Washington Press. He maintains the blog GeologyWriter.com.
Topic: Reshaping Seattle's Topography
From the massive regrade of Denny Hill to filling in 2,400 acres of the Duwamish River's tideflats, Seattle has reshaped its topography more than most cities. In his new book, Too High and Too Steep, David tells the stories of these changes by taking the reader out in the field to see the landscape and learn the history. David will provide an overview of the book in this presentation that weaves geology, civil engineering, and the historical narrative of Seattle.
