Tacoma's Theater District Book Talk

09/26/2015 - 2:00pm

Join us as we celebrate the release of Tacoma's Theater District, the new book that spans from the opening of the Tacoma Theater in 1890 to the present day, with restored historical facilities anchoring a renewed cultural district. The story is told through historical photographs of the theater venues themselves, as well as images capturing a myriad of cultural and community events taking place in those facilities and in the surrounding district.

Kimberly M. Davenport is a musician, teacher, and student of local history. She is a proud resident of Tacoma, where the last several branches of her family tree have found their nourishment. The overwhelming majority of the images presented here were gathered from Tacoma Public Library’s diverse and extensive photography archive.
