September 6 at 7pm Galveston:
Seawall Chronicles: author Kimber Fountain will speak on the topic of her
book Galveston: Seawall Chronicles. Along Galveston's Gulf Coast runs a
seventeen-foot-high, ten-mile-long protective barrier--a response to the
nation's all-time deadliest natural disaster. The seawall remains a
stoic protector more than a century later, shielding the island from much more
than physical destruction. As the foundation of Seawall Boulevard, this
structure created an entirely new tourism industry that buoyed the city's
economy through war, the Great Depression and hurricanes. Adapting to
the cultural trends and political movements that defined the past century, the
seawall represents the unbreakable spirit of Galveston's resilient population
and provides a fascinating glimpse into bygone times.
