"The Ancient Fruitcake" by Harriet Baskas
This talk is not about the old leftovers in the fridge. It is about food that is so old, so unusual, or so meaningful, that no one dares throw it away. Discover the foods buried with mummies, the petrified banana is so appealing, it sparked a Banana Museum, the 350-year-old fruitcake handed down through generations, 2,000-year-old bog butter; and the pickle that has been in a jar since the 1860's. During this "chew and chat", author and broadcaster Harriet Baskas, explores how and why these and other formerly fresh foods may have been forgotten, intentionally tucked away, or preserved due to unusual or peculiar circumstances. And more importantly, we'll talk about how these and other vintage vittles can and do hold memories, tell stores, and connect us with family, with culture, and with history.

"Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?" by David Gordon.
Throughout the Northwest, people have been reporting encounters with the Sasquatch--a hairy, eight-to-ten-foot-tall hominid-for hundreds of years. Yet, aside from a collection of large foot print casts and a sizable assemblage of eyewitness accounts, some attributable to the earliest humans in the Northwest, no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish this being's existence. Author David George Gordon evaluates the data gathered about the legendary Northwest icon, discusses the rules of critical thinking and the workings of the scientific method, and explains how one can become an effective "citizen scientist" by gathering credible evidence that can be used to substantiate the Sasquatch's status as either Man-Ape or Myth.
Attendees are encouraged to tell their tales and share their experiences with this mysterious creature.
