Subject: September Kicks off full programming schedule at the Everett
Public Library

2 p.m. Sunday, September 9th *Sunday Films Series: Karen Cries on the
Bus* Karen
has left her slimy but successful husband Mario after ten years of
marriage. She needs a fresh start to find out who she is and who she could
be, despite her husband's proclamation that she can do absolutely nothing.
For adult audience; the film has not been rated. She walks out into Bogotá
with no job, no friends, and hardly any money, but catches a break when she
meets a hairdresser named Patricia at a cheap flophouse. With her younger
and seemingly stronger friend by her side, Karen takes her first steps
towards independence and self-discovery.****

2 p.m. Saturday, September 15th, *Writing for Dollars* Want to be taken
seriously, and avoid being branded as a hack? Start by writing from what
you know. But writers must do more than research and write; they must be
artists, technicians, and businessmen, all at once. Freelance writer Bill
Cook, whose background is in optics, has written for a variety of
well-known magazines whose subject ranges from hunting and camping, to
boating, to general history, to astronomy. At this program he out the
twists and turns of becoming a magazine writer.

2 p.m. Sunday, September 16th *Seacoast Forts* A hundred years ago,
seacoast forts like Flagler, Casey, and Worden were the sentinels of Puget
Sound. Built with acres of concrete, bristling with coastal defense guns,
they housed hundreds of soldiers and artillerymen. But what were they
guarding against? Bill Woodward, Professor of American History at Seattle
Pacific University, discusses “Those Mysterious Seacoast Forts”.

2 p.m. Sunday, September 23rd *Woody and the BPA – A Folk Music Event *Ten
bucks a song. That’s what Woody Guthrie got for writing such Northwest
anthems as *Roll On, Columbia*, *Pastures of Plenty*, and *Grand Coulee Dam*.
Folk singers Bill Murlin and Carl Allen tell the story of Woody’s
thirty-day songwriting stint with the Bonneville Power Administration, in
this musical event.****

7 p.m. Tuesday, September 25th *Books* *You’ve Always Meant to Read:
Catch-22* Since its publication in 1961, *Catch-22* has sold ten million
copies, and it is acknowledged as one of the twentieth century’s greatest
novels. Its title has wormed its way into common English usage, meaning a
dilemma rendered inescapable due to conflicting or illogical rules. Heller
knew the military’s insanity first-hand; as an Air Force bombardier during
World War II he flew sixty combat missions. “I should have died three
times,” he always said. Join English professor Roger Berger as he leads a
discussion on Heller’s masterpiece.****

2 p.m. Saturday, September 29th *Ice Age Floods* The Channeled Scabland of
Eastern Washington looks like it was rooted through by a herd of
mountain-sized pigs. But what gouged the landscape was monstrous ice-age
floods. Geologist Bruce Bjornstad speaks about the Ice-Age floods that
formed the Chaneled Scabland -- if you’ve ever flown from Seattle to
Spokane early on a sunny morning, you’ve seen the Scabland in its glory.
The outrushing water from a collapsed ice dam on ancient Lake Missoula
scoured out grooves, potholes, pinnacles, and coulees in a wide area of
Eastern Washington and Idaho. The outflow was roughly equal to ten times
the flow of all present-day rivers combined! The Scabland is unique on
planet Earth.

2 p.m. Sunday, September 30th *WPA’s lasting WA legacy* The Works Progress
Administration (WPA) was tremendously busy and productive during its brief
existence, despite the protests of naysayers who said the agency's initials
stood for "We Poke Along". In this lively talk, “The Urbanologist” Max
Grinnell (who grew up in Seattle) will talk about the WPA's lasting legacy
in the Evergreen State, from Paine Field to the Grand Coulee Dam, from
improvements in the Everett sewer system to controversies about public art
in Sequim. Geographer, historian, raconteur and blogger,  Grinnell has
dissected urban life for magazines, newspapers, and journals nationwide. He
has taught urban planning at the University of Wisconsin, Boston
University, the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and the University
of Chicago. He has also written travel guides for both Frommer’s and Rough
