Community Conversation on Historical Preservation—Is Saving the Past
the Best Way to Build for the Future?

The Everett Public Library and Humanities Washington continue their
Community Conversations Series with its third topic—historical
preservation. The event will take place on Tuesday, January 11, at 7
p.m. at the Everett Public Library Auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Avenue. The
next conversation—titled “Is Saving the Past the Best Way to Build for
the Future?”—brings together a diverse panel of experts to discuss the
topic and engage attendees in a community conversation. The four
panelists include: Michael Herschensohn, Humanities Washington
Inquiring Mind Speaker and preservationist; Brandon Houskeeper, Policy
Analyst at Washington Policy Center; Dave Koenig, Planning Department
for the City of Everett; and Steve Hager, Director of Properties for
the Port of Everett and developer of Donovan homes. This event is free
and open for all to attend.

“These programs are an antidote to the divisive rhetoric that we’re
seeing around the country,” said Julie Ziegler, executive director of
Humanities Washington. “This isn’t about one side trying to shout down
the other – it is about encouraging people to come together, learn the
history behind the issues, and have more productive discussions.”

Humanities Washington is one of three state humanities that received
funding from The Boeing Company to experiment with models for civic
dialogue which could be replicated around the country. The Illinois
Humanities Council and the Maryland Humanities Councils also received
funding.
