Tammy Durston will talk about her new book, Northern California’s Lost Coast. One of the last undeveloped stretches of the California coastline, with mountains that rise thousands of feet from the sea, the Lost Coast is the only significant stretch of California without a highway. This secluded landscape was once home to the Coast Yuki, Sinkyone, Mattole, and Wiyot tribes. After a period of industrial development in the mid-1800s, it was left to return to nature and is now protected as the Sinkyone Wilderness. During the 1800s, the Lost Coast bustled with logging settlements and mill towns, though only remnants of their existence remain. From Westport north to Ferndale, this book showcases historical photographs from libraries, historical societies, and local residents. Join Tammy Durston for a history in pictures of the famed Lost Coast.

Local favorites Quack & Wabbit Puppet Theatre present a musical story about cooperation and friendship based on the book by John Burningham. The show invites audience participation, creating a playful environment for all. Quack and Wabbit also use puppet shows to help children deal with social issues including second-hand smoke, fear of the dentist, peer pressure, problem solving, safety and the environment. Puppetry allows children to remove themselves from adult to child interaction and receive the message through friendly fantasy figures. Each child in attendance will receive a free book, new or gently used.
