For eight years, beginning in 1935, the Works Progress Administration, later renamed the Works Project Administration, provided jobs across the nation in an effort by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to end the Great Depression.
Max Grinnell, known as "The Urbanogist," will speak about the WPA and its legacy in our state, from Paine Field to Grand Coulee Dam and even to improvements in the Everett sewer system, from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Everett Public Library.
Grinnell, a geographer, historian and blogger who has written about urban life in magazines, newspaperd and journals, is presenting this forum as part of the library's fall history program.
The free talk takes place in the main library auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Ave., Everett.
Call 425-252-8000 or online at www.epls.org for more information.
