Washington State Historical Society’s History Awards
with keynote speaker New York Times columnist Timothy Egan
Saturday April 30, 5:00 – 8:00 PM
Tickets: $25

We are at last able to gather and honor the History Award winners! Please join us at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma for an evening celebrating the awardees, and learn more about history in our region from keynote speaker Timothy Egan, acclaimed writer and veteran chronicler of the American experience.

Guests will enjoy a reception with delicious bites and beverages and have the chance to mingle with History Award recipients and explore the newest galleries in the Great Hall of Washington History.

Following the reception, the History Awards will be presented in the auditorium. Guests will have the opportunity to hear from Timothy Egan, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, popular columnist, and National Book Award-winning author of nine books. Egan’s New York Times opinion column on politics, environment, and the American West is consistently among the most-read pieces on the NYT site.

The Washington State Historical Society’s History Awards recognize excellence in advancing the field of history in the state of Washington through writing, teaching, historic projects, and understanding cultural diversity.
