In What They Signed Up For, eighteen American veterans tell their stories of going to war and life after they came home. In the cities of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan, they witnessed the carnage of IEDs and survived daily mortar attacks. They put friends into body bags and saw others grievously wounded. But for many combat veterans, the war didn’t end when they took off their uniform. The invisible wounds of war run deeper, and are more painful, than America wants to know. The cost of war continues back home.

Ingrid Walker - High: Drugs, Desire, and a Nation of Users

January 24, 2018 - 7:00pm

Ravenna

Whether drinking Red Bull, relieving chronic pain with oxycodone, or experimenting with Ecstasy, Americans participate in a culture of self-medication, using psychoactive substances to enhance or manage our moods. A "drug-free America" seems to be a fantasyland that most people don't want to inhabit. High: Drugs, Desire, and a Nation of Users asks fundamental questions about US drug policies and social norms. Why do we endorse the use of some drugs and criminalize others? Why do we accept the necessity of a doctor-prescribed opiate but not the same thing bought off the street?

Margaret Turcott - Bothell

January 30, 2018 - 7:00pm

Lake Forest Park

The river community of Bothell began with the arrival of Columbus Greenleaf and George Wilson in 1870. They staked claims along the Sammamish River after navigating from Seattle across Lake Washington and then east along the meandering Sammamish. Bothell was first a logging community, with several mills producing boards and shingles. After the forests were harvested, it became a farming community, connected to other settlements by the river and, after 1887, the railroad. In 1909, Bothell incorporated as a city after a contentious campaign. The vote was 79 to 70 in favor of becoming a city.

Susan Wise Bauer - Rethinking School

January 31, 2018 - 7:00pm

Lake Forest Park

Our K-12 school system is an artificial product of market forces. It isn't a good fit for all—or even most--students. It prioritizes a single way of understanding the world over all others, pushes children into a rigid set of grades with little regard for individual maturity, and slaps "disability" labels over differences in learning style.
