Join us for the book release at the Nordic Heritage Museum with an exhibition of original art by Nordic American Voices narrators Signe Heggem Davis and Andy Ferøy. There will also be a short presentation that includes an excerpt from the video documentary, and refreshments will be served.
The book Voices of Ballard and Beyond: Stories of Immigrants and Their Descendants in The Pacific Northwest is the result of a three-year effort by volunteers for the Nordic American Voices Oral History Project. Since 2009, this group of volunteers has recorded more than 230 interviews at the Museum and in locations throughout the Puget Sound region. Thirty-two stories gleaned from the transcripts are included in the new publication along with 97 stories that formed the 2001 publication "Voices of Ballard, Immigrant Stories from the Vanishing Generation".
Reservations encouraged; to RSVP, call 206-789 5707 x10, or email email@example.com.
