Historian Paul Dorpat and photographer Jean Sherrard give an illustrated talk on their new book "Seattle Now & Then: The Historic Hundred." Public historian Paul Dorpat's popular column "Seattle Now and Then" has appeared in The Seattle Times more than 1,800 times since 1982. Each column told a unique story about Seattle by juxtaposing a historic "then" photo with a "now" image of the same place. Most of Paul's recent "now" photos have been taken by Seattle teacher, actor and photographer Jean Sherrard. "Seattle Now & Then: The Historic Hundred" is a culmination of Paul and Jean's partnership and showcases the most compelling columns in a beautiful and remarkable coffee-table book. Co-sponsored by Historic Seattle and Historic Wallingford.
