The Space Needle, science, skyrides, showgirls; many nations, monorail stations, Elvis gyrations! The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair had it all, optimistically looking ahead to imagine what the future might hold. The Woman’s Century Club invites the public to a free talk by Club member Paula Becker and her co-author, Alan Stein, authors of the new book “The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair and Its Legacy.”

They will speak on Friday, January 20, at noon in the parlor of the Harvard Exit Theatre, 807 E. Roy Street. The event is free, and the public is warmly invited to attend; to reserve a seat, just RSVP to president@womanscenturyclub.org.

Becker and Stein are both staff historians at HistoryLink.org. The book was published by the Seattle Center Foundation in conjunction with the Next Fifty, an upcoming six-month citywide celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Seattle World’s Fair that begins on April 21.

Their book will be available for purchase, and they will be happy to autograph copies following the talk. The event is co-sponsored by Elliott Bay Book Co.

The Woman’s Century Club was founded by suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt, a protege of Susan B. Anthony, in Seattle in 1891. It constructed the Harvard Exit Theatre building as its clubhouse in 1925, and its emblem can still be seen above both entrances.

Dues are $50/year, and the club welcomes new members; for more information, email president@womanscenturyclub.org, visit www.womanscenturyclub.org, or Like the Club on Facebook.
