Local award-winning author Candace Wellman will discuss the companion work to Peace Weavers, her previous book on Puget Sound’s cross-cultural marriages. This volume depicts the lives of four additional intermarried indigenous women who influenced mid-1800s settlement in the Bellingham Bay area. She describes each wife’s native culture, details ancestral history and traits for both spouses, and traces descendants’ destinies, highlighting the families’ contributions to new communities. Wellman is the recipient of the 2018 WILLA Literary Award for Scholarly Non-fiction from Women Writing the West for her first book Peace Weavers. Co-presented by the Whatcom County Historical Society (WCHS). $5 suggested donation/Museum and WCHS members free.
