Museum presents Skye Burn

As part of an ongoing monthly series, the Orcas Island Historical Museum will present Skye Burn, granddaughter of June Burn who was the author of “Living High.”

This popular and well-loved book is described as an “unconventional biography.” It details the adventures of June and her husband Ferrar as they came west in the 1930s and were able to homestead Sentinel Island.

Skye will be visiting from Bellingham to tell stories and answer questions on Sunday, Nov. 18, 3 p.m. in the Lundeen Room of Orcas Senior Center. Admission is always by donation at the door. There will not be a history matinee for the month of December.
