Our new book, Olmsted in Seattle, is now available for purchase at local bookstores and online at UW Press and Amazon, following our official launch and presentation at Seattle Public Library on Saturday, November 16, 2019.

Author, Jennifer Ott, gave a 50-minute presentation to a sizable audience in the Microsoft Auditorium in the downtown branch and entertained questions immediately following. Ott signed a number of books, which were available for immediate purchase through Elliott Bay Books.

According to Petyr Beck, publisher and president of Documentary Media, pre-sales exceeded 400 copies prior to the book launch.

Thank you for all who have supported the production of Olmsted in Seattle. We are very grateful to HistoryLink and Documentary Media for their expertise in bringing this project forward. A very special thanks to Seattle Public Library and Elliott Bay Books for a successful launch.
