MUST HEARKnute Berger at the Space needleThursday (11/1) — Seattle magazine editor-at-large Knute Berger is presenting MOHAI’s esteemed Denny Lecture tomorrow night at the Space Needle. The topic du jour? Why, the Space Needle, of course. Learn all about the truly quirkly origins of the Needle, as recounted in Berger’s new book, Space Needle: The Spirit of Seattle, plus, be among the first to hear about new discoveries he’s made since publishing the book.
If you ever find yourself crying at work, take Ellen Forney’s advice: “Don’t wipe your tears. Don’t change your posture. Just keep working until you get to the point where your nose is running and you’re kind of a mess—then get up, go to the bathroom, blow your nose and wipe your face. Take a deep breath and go back to work.”
Seattle magazine editor-at-large Knute Berger returns to his stomping grounds at the Space Needle tomorrow night.
After spending a year at the Needle as writer-in-residence, Berger will now be in attendance to deliver MOHAI's Denny Lecture, a new annual event developed to recognize the work of influential historians in our region.
There’s something ironic about a museum devoted to documenting a city’s progress getting booted out of its home in the name of progress.
Then again, the team at Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) understands better than most that civic progress does not happen without demise and demolition.
If you missed the Hermès Festival of Crafts last February at The Bravern, where a traveling group of artisans set up workshop in the Bravern’s Exhibition Space and blew viewers’ minds with their skilled fine craftsmanship, now’s your chance to see something else amazing from this iconic French design house, this time with a nod to future rather than a glimpse at the past.
