HISTORY TALK ASTORIA - The Columbia River Maritime Museum will host guest speaker Irene Martin, who will present "What the Women Left Behind," on May 18 at 7 p.m.

"What the Women Left Behind" is an exploration of 19th and 20th century women involved in the fishing and canning industries on the Columbia River. Using diaries, stories, artifacts and photographs, Martin will talk about how immigrant women left behind their countries of origin and how they adapted to life in the isolated fishing towns and villages. Martin will also share the role these women played in early fishing and canning on the Columbia River.

This very special Museum event is free to everyone on a first come, first served basis. This event is co-sponsored by AAUW, the Astoria Bicentennial Committee and the Columbia River Maritime Museum.

Admission to the musuem is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (over 65), $5 for children ages 6 through 17, and free to children under 6 and museum members. The Columbia River Maritime Museum is located at 1792 Marine Drive in Astoria.
