July 30th at 2pm - The Razors Edge: The Washington Razor Clam Phenomenon
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. Come see David Berger speak about his new book “The Razors Edge: The Washington Razor Clam Phenomenon”. Copies of Bergers book will be available for sale. This event is sponsored by the Speakers Bureau through the Humanities of Washington.
