  2. Analog Days: How Technology Changed Our Culture, Alex Alben Feb. 11, 2014 7pm
    Free and open to the public
    Those of us born before 1980 increasingly cannot recognize the world around us. Our rapid adoption of computers, the Internet and mobile devices has transformed the way we communicate. This technical revolution has had profound social effects, splitting our society into “analog” and “digital” cultures. We now struggle to live simultaneously in two cultures – one that hews to a world rooted in books and personal social contacts, the other oriented toward a vast global computer network that sends us news and entertainment at the click of a fingertip. Can old analog values survive in this new digital universe? Our conversation, led by technology expert Alex Alben, explores how digital inventions are shaping communication, political discourse and today’s media landscape.

    Andrew Lam is a Vietnamese American journalist and writer. Lam left Vietnam with his family during the fall of Saigon in April 1975. He attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he majored in biochemistry. He soon abandoned plans for medical school and entered a creative writing program at San Francisco State University. In 2005, Lam published a collection of essays, “Perfume Dreams: Reflections on the Vietnamese Diaspora,” about the problem of identity as a Vietnamese living in the U.S. Lam received the PEN Open Book Award (formerly known as the Beyond Margins Award) in 2006 for the collection. He is a regular contributor to National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.” His second book, “East Eats West: Writing in Two Hemispheres,” is a meditation on east and west relations, and how Asian immigration changed the west. “Birds of Paradise Lost,” his third book, is a collection of short stories about Vietnamese newcomers struggling to remake their lives in the San Francisco Bay after a long, painful exodus from Vietnam. Lam blogs regularly on Huffington Post.

  5. Slavery in the Northwest: The Charles Mitchell Story
    Eva Abram
    Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, 7 p.m.
    Black Box Theatre
    Free and open to the public.
    Produced by
    Humanities Washington; Arts, Culture, and Civic Engagement at Edmonds CC; and Sno-Isle Libraries

    Storyteller Eva Abram will share the history of one of the few documented cases of slavery in our state’s history. Charles Mitchell, who was born a slave, was brought to Washington Territory in 1853. A tempest was building and citizens all over the state had opinions about a possible Civil War, influencing their opinions about Mitchell’s status as a slave. In this climate, Mitchell made a break for freedom – and his actions nearly started a war between the U.S. and Canada. Through this story, we will examine how ideologies move geographically. The migration to Washington attracted Americans with different socioeconomic experiences from both Northern and Southern states. Did moving to Washington affect peoples’ opinions on slavery?
