Event Description

Edmonds Community College holds its fifth Women’s Symposium, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Sat., March 13 in Triton Union Building 202. Author, educator, and poet laureate Dr. Mona Lake Jones is the featured speaker for the event. She will address participants on the theme of this year’s event, “Women: 100 Years of Triumph.”
Lake Jones is the author of the poetry and prose collections Unleashing the Power of a Sister and the Color of Culture series as well as a spoken word collection on CD, Poetry Dancing on Music. She is the King County Poet Laureate and served as the Seattle Poet Laureate for five years. She received the Langston Hughes Award for her literary contributions and the Blackbird Literary Award, which honors a published author for her works and contributions to the community. “It’s important to recognize all the contributions women have made in this century and we’re looking forward to having Dr. Lake Jones at our event to make the point with eloquence and style,” said Shirley Sutton, Executive Director of Diversity Affairs at Edmonds Community College. “It should be noted that this is good information for men too. We’ve had a number of men attend past events. Everyone’s welcome!”

The Women’s Symposium will also include a living history lecture by actress and historian Tames Alan entitled “Suffragettes in Petticoats,” a women’s resource fair, a “Fashion Through the Ages” show, and a panel on “The Changing Roles of Women: Reflecting the Past: Realizing the Future.”

The evening before the symposium, the community is invited to meet Seattle artist Mary Ann Peters at the Heart and Grace reception, 5-7:30 p.m., Fri., March 12 in the college library. Celebrate Women’s History Month and the fifth annual Women’s Symposium with an evening of art, music, and culinary delights. Free. Open to all. Peters’ works in progress, “If Thinking Is Form: A Visual Diary,” are on exhibit in the college art gallery through March 15. Find out more at http://www.edcc.edu/gallery.

The cost of the Saturday Women’s Symposium is $15 for students and $40 for the public. There’s a discount on tickets purchased before Feb. 25: $10 for students, $35 general, and $20 for people age 65 and over. Buy tickets online or call 425.640.1448. Tickets may be purchased the day of the event.

Welcome new members!

Edmonds CC Ning respectfully requests that we present our better nature to the online community and to each other — and may, in fact, insist on it!

The best stuff is yours! Student produced creative works: songs, videos, artwork, writing and pics get priority placement on the site. You're the star power here.

On the other hand: overly promotional material, advertising content, with no connection to our college community does not go here!
