There are five primary forces that created modern Olympia.
If you only understood the history of these five forces, and how they continue to play out in strikingly unique and weird ways, you’ll be well on your way to making sense of Olympia (and better equipped to change it).
Join us on Tuesday, May 7 at 7:00 PM as we welcome local historian, activist and comedian David Scherer Water to discuss his book: MAKING SENSE OF OLYMPIA.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
