History is happening in the Redmond area and we welcome you to our meeting. The Redmond Historical Society will meet on Saturday, January 12, 2013, 10:30 a.m. to noon, at The Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, 16600 NE 80 Street, Redmond, WA. Lorraine McConaghy is a public historian with the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle.
She will be presenting Territorial Voices: A Civil War Reader’s Theater, which is an interactive, living theater piece in which the audience reads the words of ordinary settlers, territorial military and administrative leadership. Lorraine will give a brief lecture to set the stage for the audience participation and will present various opinions on race and slavery in Washington Territory. Conversation will follow about the ideas and themes raised in the communal theater. Lorraine’s presentation is sponsored by Humanities Washington. This meeting should be of particular interest to the Redmond schools, both teachers and students. Don’t miss this meeting.
