Too High and Too Steep- A New Book about reshaping Seattle’s topography

Book Launch

University Bookstore, Seattle, September 9 7 PM

My good friend David B. Williams’ new book, Too High and Too Steep: Reshaping Seattle’s Topography is coming out September 9th. The book explores the massive excavation necessary to remove rocks and till to regrade downtown Seattle, dig the Ship Canal, fill the tideflats. That nasty geology was in the way, see? The big book launch will be on September 9 at the University Book Store. You will be able to buy the book there and DavdI will be signing. I can’t wait to get my copy!

Village Books, Bellingham, on Wednesday, September 16, at 7pm.

Here is a link to David’s web page on the book: http://geologywriter.com/books/too-high-and-too-steep/

Village Books hasn’t yet posted the reading on their events page but I will pass that along when it appears.
