White Privilege: The Other Side of Racial Inequality


Conversations about racial inequality usually focus on the disadvantages faced by people of color in American society. But there is another side to this inequality: privilege—the advantages that white people experience because of their race. Sociology professor Teresa Ciabattari leads an interactive conversation that explores what white privilege is, discusses a variety of examples of privilege for individuals and institutions, and provides tools for learning how to address it. Sponsored by Humanities Washington and the Friends of the Lacey Timberland Library.

Other Upcoming Events

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore: An Author Talk with Kim Fu

Signing/Readings, Talks/Lectures

Please join us for an afternoon with Seattle author Kim Fu, who will read from and discuss her new novel, "The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore." A group of young girls descend on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and camp songs. They set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island, and before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home. The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these girls through and beyond this fateful trip, and we come to understand how a tragedy can alter the lives it touches in innumerable ways. Kim Fu is a Canadian-born author living in Seattle, Washington. Her first novel, "For Today I Am a Boy" won the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction and was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award.

Last Will and Testament: The Basics and Beyond


Many Americans avoid planning for the final distribution of their property and the guardianship of their minor children. While it can be emotionally difficult, planning ahead allows you to outline your wishes. Expert legal assistance from an attorney may be necessary; others may find the process simple. This workshop will outline some situations that warrant getting legal counsel to help with planning. It will also highlight simple will forms for both single and married people, with or without minor children. The presenter is Rob Mead, Director of the Washington State Law Library, a member of the Washington and New Mexico bars, and a co-author of the legal treatise Advising the Elderly Client.
