1962 World’s Fair author event at Broadview Library

by | Nov 12, 2011

The co-authors of the new book “The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair and its Legacy” will give a talk and slide show at the Broadview Library at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17. The free event is sponsored by the Broadview Historical Society.
Co-authors Paula Becker and Alan J. Stein collaborated on the book.

Astronauts, Elvis, sky rides, royalty, the Kennedys, religion, topless showgirls, the Canadian tattoo, the Cold War and futurist speculation ‒ the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair had it all. The era and its people come to life in The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair and Its Legacy ‒ a new, coffee-table-style book filled with fascinating history, stories and pictures to celebrate the fair’s upcoming 50th anniversary.
Browse this 300-page, image-rich hardcover and learn how the space race lit the fire under Seattle’s movers, shakers and dreamers, and how they turned their little-known, geographically isolated city into the place that “invented the future” and gave us the remarkable legacy of a fondly remembered six months of learning and fun in 1962.

The Broadview Library is at 12755 Greenwood Ave. N.
