Community members are embracing our more than 75 programs that promote active, healthy lifestyles with an emphasis on building social connections. For many, the EWC has served as a lifeline.

Edmonds Author & Speaker Series presents
“Woman, Captain, Rebel” with Margaret Willson

JULY 18, 2024 at 6:30pm
Cost is $7.50 per person
Walk-ins welcome
A daring and magnificent historical narrative nonfiction account of Iceland’s most famous female sea captain who constantly fought for women’s rights and equality, and who also solved one of the country’s most notorious robberies. Woman, Captain, Rebel is a haunting historical biography of the fearless Thurídur Einarsdóttir, a woman who contested social norms while simultaneously becoming one of the most celebrated fishing captains of her time. History would have us believe that no historical female sea captains existed. This one did. Her life is a riveting saga with meaning and resonance for people everywhere today. This program is in partnership with My Edmonds News and Edmonds Bookshop.
