Course Correction with Ginny Gilder
3:00 – 4:00 pm @ Eagle Harbor Book Co. (157 Winslow Way East)
Olympic medalist Ginny Gilder, whose book, Course Correction, tells the heartfelt and candid story of a young woman’s journey to become an elite athlete in the wake of Title IX. Having grown up in an era when girls were only beginning to abandon the sidelines as observers and cheerleaders to become national champions, Gilder harbored no dreams of athletic stardom. But when Gilder went to Yale in 1975, she found herself in a new world, training with Olympic rowers and participating in the famous Title IX naked protest, which helped define the movement for equality in college sports. Course Correction recounts the physical and psychological barriers Gilder overcame as she transformed into an elite athlete who reached the highest echelon of her sport. Admission: Free
Monday, May 4
Open Mic Science
8:00 pm @ Treehouse Café (4569 Lynwood Center Road NE)
Dr. Shallin Busch will give a talk titled “Ocean Acidification in Washington State: an exploration of its chemical, biological and societal impacts.” Ocean acidification, a consequence of carbon dioxide emissions, potentially has a large impact on ocean ecosystems. Ocean acidification is caused by well understood chemical processes, though its progression in coastal estuaries is complicated by a variety of human activities. However, the biological, societal, and economic implications of ocean acidification are poorly understood but could be large, especially in some regions like the Pacific Northwest. The region’s oyster industry has likely already experienced its negative effects. This presentation will explain ocean acidification, explore its ecological implications for Washington and the Pacific Northwest, and discuss the Panel’s recommendations. Admission: Free
Tuesday, May 5

Thursday, May 7
The Drowsy Chaperone at Bainbridge Performing Arts
7:30 pm @ Bainbridge Performing Arts (200 Madison Avenue North)
Winner of 5 TONY Awards (including Best Book and Best Original Score), The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz-age musical featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and the show begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight! Admission: Pay what you can
