Woman’s Century Club 2021 Annual “May Breakfast” and Program Meeting

 

We will be formally welcoming new members to the club as well as enjoying a talk by Judy Bentley:
“Washington Remembers: From Marcus Whitman to Billy Frank, Jr – Stories of Washington Statues and Memorials.”

 

While walking the sidewalks of Washington cities to research her book, Judy Bentley came across some surprising memorials to the past:–statues honoring George Washington, Mother Joseph, Abraham Lincoln,  Spanish-American War veterans,  Wendy the Welder, Dirty Dan, and Jimi Hendrix.  She also found a fish story, a boat of discovery, wreaths commemorating Wobblies, and a fruit-picker’s basket.  All of these public sculptures honor some event or person a city wishes to remember or honor.  Who decides who should be honored?  Whose history is told?  Bentley will take listeners on a tour of city statues and memorials and discuss how and why they came to be in public spaces, how history the public values has been set in stone.

Judy Bentley taught literature, composition, and Pacific Northwest History at South Seattle College for more than 20 years.  She is the author of more than fifteen books, including two guidebooks. The second edition of Hiking Washington’s History, the greater outdoors complement to Walking Washington History, will be published this spring.
