Discussion & Book Signing
Did you know that museums throughout the country only display about 5% of the material they have in their collection? Award-winning radio producer Harriet Baskas has gone behind the Employees Only doors of America's museums to find the things they either don't have the space to display, or keep in storage for reasons social, political, or cultural.
Co-sponsored by Humanities Washington.
Harriet Baskas is an award-winning radio producer with a Masters in Communication from the University of Washington. Her radio series include Henriettas Holiday: Portraits of Unusual Museums and the Hidden Treasures Radio Project.
