What brings thousands of men, women, and children to Washington's sandy coastal beaches every year, braving weather and surf? The buried treasure known as the Pacific razor clam.
Hunting and gathering these creatures has preoccupied Northwesterners from the time of the Native peoples to the present moment. Challenging to dig, delicious to eat, and providing a sometimes heady experience of abundance, razor clams are entwined with the state's commerce, identity, and history. Join author and clam digger David Berger to explore the twists and turns of a quintessential Northwest activity from its pre-settlement days to the present.
Presented with the support of the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
