Jody Bower- Jane Eyre's Sisters

For centuries, the hero's journey has been a subject of discussion and study. But not until now has serious consideration been given to the heroine's journey, its difference from the hero's quest, and the way its characters have served as both role models for women and reflections of women's increasing independence over time. In her new book, cultural mythologist Jody Bower examines a wide range of myths and folk tales, genre fiction and popular culture, biography and autobiography, and classic women's literature to bring the story of the wandering heroine to life. For an in-depth look at the analytical and practical new book, join us at this reading and signing with Bower. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Audience: Singles. College Students. Dads. Moms.

Redmond At the End of the Ice Age: What the Bear Creek Site Tells Us

REDMOND AT THE END OF THE ICE AGE: WHAT THE BEAR CREEK SITE TELLS US Robert Kopperl, Ph.D. SWCA Environmental Consultants Archaeological research near the mouth of Redmond’s Bear Creek has shed new light on early Native American lifeways in the Puget Sound Lowlands at the end of the Ice Age and has led to national attention. Since 2008, SWCA Environmental Consultants has been conducting investigations for the City of Redmond as part of a salmon habitat restoration project. The stone tools that have been found at the site tell us a great deal about the early inhabitants of the area, what their technology was like, and how they made a living over 10,000 years ago. Other more subtle clues help paint a picture of the landscape on which these people lived. In the first public presentation of information since the big excavation in 2013, archeologist Dr. Robert Kopperl will share a wealth of new information. He is speaking courtesy of the City of Redmond. Enjoy a relaxing morning at the Redmond Histori… Category: Classes & Lectures. Cost: Free with suggested $5 donation for non-members.
