On Thursday, November 1, the Friends of the Seaside Library will welcome local historian and author Gloria Linkey, as she makes “History Come Alive”.  The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and will be held in the Community Room.

Gloria will explain some of the more interesting facts of the history of our area, including information about the men and women who founded our country and those who forged the beginnings of Clatsop County.

Some of the topics that will be covered are why did Lewis and Clark operate so well together?  What were they like as individuals and how did they function under the most unusual conditions?  Was William Price Hunt the best leader for the Astorians?  What were relations like between the Native American Nations during that time?  Linkey will also delve into the discovery of the Columbia River, first peoples, the Louisiana Purchase, missionaries, and present and past Astorians.

Gloria Linkey is a Past President of the Seaside Museum and Historical society, and a member of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation.  She is the author of “Native American Women: Three Who Changed History”.
